The skies are lit up all summer with extravagant fireworks at Myrtle Beach festivals, holiday events, and weekly celebrations at the best local venues. There are several fireworks shops in town, but these popular party favors must be detonated on private property during certain times and situations, and they are never allowed on the beach or in public. Rather than sort through the red tape, leave the explosions to the experts. Besides, would you rather watch a DIY fireworks show or professional pyrotechnics featuring the biggest, brightest fireworks in Myrtle Beach?
When you’re in town on a holiday, you can count on one or two fireworks shows put on by the area communities and the city of Myrtle Beach. But on the 4th of July, fireworks top the list of things to do in July, so you’ll find them from North Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island, and sometimes simultaneously. Visitors attending events or parades in other towns can choose nearly any spot, post up, and enjoy a spectacular holiday show.
