Movies at McLean – August 8th

Gather your clan and head south to McLean Park to enjoy a free movie under the stars! Each month, the city hosts this family friendly event that features a popular movie projected onto a large, outdoor screen. This month, Despicable Me 2 is showing. Your minions are sure to love this favorite! The movie starts promptly at 8:30 pm but many guests arrive early to get in a little play time at the park and to stake out prime real estate for the showing. Fresh popcorn and refreshing drinks will be available for purchase via the North Myrtle Beach Lions Club.

Music on Main – Ongoing

In the mood for a night out on the town and a little live music? Well, if you are in town on a Thursday, be sure to check out the Music on Main series in downtown North Myrtle Beach. Each week, the city hosts a different local musician or band to perform in the “horseshoe” section of downtown from 7pm to 9pm. This is a great opportunity to check out the local shops and dining downtown and then kick back and unwind while you take in the sounds of summer. Guests can bring chairs and blankets to set up along the beach or even hit the streets for a little dancing! Scheduled performers for August include Gary Lowder & Smokin’ Hot (beach music) The Wannabees (classic rock), Carolina Soul Band (beach music). The best part is, these concerts are completely free!
