If you’re planning your vacation to coastal South Carolina in early September be sure not to miss the 6th Annual Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival! It takes place September 2-4, 2011 at the  Grand Park at Market Common in Myrtle Beach, SC. This is centrally located close to many Myrtle Beach condo rentals that are still available.

This family-friendly festival, organized by the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, will feature free live entertainment, wake board demonstrations, free boat rides plus celebrity chef Richard Blais, winner of BRAVO TV’s ‘Top Chef: All Stars’ show. This festival marks the end of the Sun Fun Celebration of Summer

The main attraction is the finger-lickin, lip-smackin’ good food and lots of it from food vendors and competitors. Attendees can sample delicious barbeque from all competing teams on Saturday beginning at 12 p.m. by purchasing a $10 wristband. Kids 10 and under can sample for free. On Sunday attendees can enjoy a wide variety of wings and look on as hungry competitors challenge each other in a wing ‘eat-off’. Kids will do the same in a watermelon eating contest that follows. Lots of great prizes await the winners, as well as free watermelon for all attendees at 2 p.m.

Three cooking events promise to attract the nation’s finest competitors: Anything Goes contest and tasting on Friday and the Official S.C. Barbeque Championship and Kansas City Barbeque Society Cook-off on Saturday. Each competition will be awarding prize money.

The scheduled events run from Friday, September 2, 5:30 – 9 p.m.; Saturday, September 3, 12 – 9:30 p.m.; and Sunday, September 4, 12-5 p.m.

Whether you’re entering or just attending this event now is the time to make your reservations for Myrtle Beach condo rentals!
