Southern Palmetto Farms

Owners Heath and Stephanie Squires are long time friends, and I am thrilled for the amazing agro-tourism business they have developed just down the road from where I grew up! In October you can enjoy the pumpkin patch, corn maze, wagon rides, inflatables, animal exhibits, food trucks, and of course, my favorite, Fright Nights! There is something for everyone and a truly fun-filled day!

Georgetown Wooden Boat Show

The 33rd Annual Wooden Boat Show returns October 15 and 16 in Downtown Georgetown with all proceeds benefiting the SC Maritime Museum. The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show – always held on the third weekend in October – features one of the Southeast’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 100 classic wooden boats displayed on land and water, boatbuilding, a corrugated boat race, children’s model boatbuilding, a youth sailing regatta,  knot tying, maritime arts and crafts, and food.   

Myrtle Beach Greek Festival

After two years of drive-thru only events, the members of the Saint John Greek Orthodox community are so happy to offer our full, in-person festival to the Myrtle Beach area again. Running Thursday, October 13 through Sunday, October 16, you will enjoy an array of Greek food, church tours, Green dance performances, a kids area and vendor fair!

Loris Bog Off Festival

The Loris Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Loris Bog-Off Festival each year on the third Saturday in October in downtown Loris.  The event is a day packed with entertainment, vendors, food, and fun for all ages.  The festival began in 1980 as a chicken bog cooking contest and has evolved into the huge event it is today.  Chicken bog generally consists of chicken, rice, sausage and spices of your choice; though over the years there have been many variations of this basic recipe. I have not entered this year, but be sure that the year I do I am taking home the top prize!

Taste of the Town

Tuesday, October 18th is the Grand Strand’s Premier Culinary Social Event.  Taste of the Town is Myrtle Beach’s original food festival established in 1984.   Taste of the Town will be hosting the area’s finest restaurants serving up tapas style, Better Brands’ Autumn Ale House, and a Wine Patio. St. Andrews Catholic School has hosted one of the most anticipated events of the year, there is something for everyone!

City of Halloween, South Carolina

Earlier this month, Mayor Barbara Blain-Bellamy announced that the City of Conway would be known as the City of Halloween, South Carolina in celebration of their package of sights, eats and varied fun family activities. It is a local celebration when the 'pumpkin trees' bloom and the witch hats adorn the fountain and garden area of City Hall. This is just a few examples of the eclectic celebration you'll find throughout Horry County's County Seat, with something for everyone!
