Halloween Events in Myrtle Beach 2016

Do you wanna see something really scary? It’s Halloween, so your answer should be, yes! And if you’re visiting Myrtle Beach in October, there are plenty of scares for fear junkies to be had.

For instance, imagine that you are walking on the boardwalk downtown – let’s say on a Friday or Saturday night between 6:00 p.m. and midnight. You’re with your friends, maybe you just left a trendy watering hole. And then you get the sense that someone might be following you…

Nah, that would be crazy. This isn’t a horror movie. Or is it?

What the heck, you turn around, expecting to see nothing more than other people out on the town, just like you. But, yeah, you see a zombie. Or two. Or three!

And that, my friends, is Myrtle Beach’s Boardwalk Fright Nights. Scare actors will be stalking the boardwalk to scare, startle and frighten you out of your wits. You will also find great haunted attractions and off-season discounts at most area shops & restaurants.

If you prefer your scares to be more chilling and spectral in nature, then you may want to opt for the Conway Ghost Walk. Starting at 7:00 p.m. on October 20th, 21st and the 22nd, actors will take guests on a walking tour of downtown’s haunted history, weaving yarns that could leave your hair standing on end. It’s an hour long walk (about a mile) with tours leaving every fifteen minutes until 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under.

And on Halloween Night, shopping and entertainment complex Broadway at the Beach will host trick-or-treating for the little ones under a sky lit up by fireworks.

So, no matter how scared you want to be, Myrtle Beach has amazing events planned to fill your October with thills and delights. Be sure to book your South Carolina vacation today!
