  1. Wow Great news.
    We are also planning to visit Myrtle Beach in month of may.

  2. Interesting. My family has been living in Charlotte for a few years and we visit Myrtle Beach a couple times a year. We didn’t realize how many celebrities come down for this Mayfest. Can’t wait to bring the girls down and surprise them with Freddie from iCarly

  3. Buzz is coming!?!?! Wonder if he would mind if I called him Buzz Lightyear? I can’t wait for the parade. See you there Buzz!!!

  4. “When the night has come, and the land is dark, and the moon is the only, light you see.” Love Ben E. King. Hope he plays “Stand By Me” all night.

  5. Three days away! Can’t wait. I hope that the sun shines bright for Myrtle Beach Mayfest!!!
