How to Find Myrtle Beach Summer Fireworks Shows

It’s a summer standard: Resting after a long day of fun at the beach to take in a fireworks display.


You have some choices this summer when you come to Myrtle Beach. And they’re not just for Independence Day. It’s part of the festive atmosphere you find here during peak season.


Here’s where to find the best displays — and how to enjoy the best.

Tips for Watching Fireworks Shows

There’s always a way to get the most out of a fun experience, isn’t there? We checked with a few experts on fireworks displays.


  1. Bring insect repellent

On a warm summer night, when you’re stationary, you might attract a mosquito or two. Keep a can of repellent handy, especially if you’re near a body of water.

  1. Bring earplugs

Usually, the noise doesn’t bother people, but if it becomes uncomfortable, you’ll have them. You can bring over-the-head headset-style ear protection. They’re often used for motorsports.

  1. Stay safe

Know your surroundings, especially if there is low lighting. If you’re watching from a boat, wear your life jacket.

English playwright, poet, and actor William Shakespeare referred to fireworks in many plays. In Love’s Labour’s Lost, there’s a line that says this:

With some delightful ostentation

Or show, or pageant, or antique, or firework.”

Here’s another spot to eat and shop, then settle in for the pyrotechnics. They’ll be on display on select Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays through the summer. See the Broadway at the Beach calendar for exact dates (all begin at 10 p.m.)
