Overview
Fireworks Shows

Despite several fireworks shops in Myrtle Beach, these popular party favors are technically illegal to possess or discharge within city limits, on the beach and in most areas of the Grand Strand. If you get caught you’ll be subject to a $200 fine. So why not leave the bright light blasts to the experts, because there are certainly plenty of fireworks shows in Myrtle Beach to enjoy. Fireworks shows have long been an inseparable part of beach vacations, and it seems like there are more big displays than ever. With several area attractions offering at least one show per week, there’s really no excuse not to catch a good explosion show while you’re here. As for the 4th of July, they’ll be everywhere from Cherry Grove to Pawleys Island, sometimes simultaneously, so pick a spot and post up and enjoy the extravaganza.
