Myrtle Beach is rolling out the red, white and blue festivals, fireworks, parades and more in all of our Old Glory along the Grand Strand. Even though this year’s most patriotic holiday falls on a Tuesday, it doesn’t mean our list of Myrtle Beach 4th of July 2018 events is lacking in firecrackers or pizazz. Check out what to do and where to stay if you’re planning your vacation here with us! Salute from the Shore: This South Carolina Fourth of July tradition features a military flyover that stretches the entire length of the coast from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To support and salute our armed forces, stand on the beach during the time of your flyover wearing our nation’s patriotic colors or waving flags.
