2015 Summerfest at Barefoot Landing
Summerfest, which began on June 1st, will still be going strong all the way until August 29th. These weekly events include live entertainment, kids' karaoke, stilt walkers, face painting, appearances from your favorite super heroes and princesses, fireworks every Monday at 10:15pm, and more. Summerfest has a little bit of something for everyone and is sure to be a hit amongst your family members of all ages.
Myrtle Beach Speedway
Ride on the back of the Macho Mutt Monster Truck for only $10. The Macho Mutt's wheels are a whopping 64", making this ride perfect for all you thrill seekers out there. You can also take a Pace Car Ride for a speedy, yet safe for all ages, ride around the racetrack with a professional driver. If you're looking for a little more speed, you can ride shotgun in a real NASCAR race car for a total of 3 laps at top speed. If you think you got what it takes to drive on your own, you can do that too! After a driver's meeting with the crew Chief for training and instruction, you're good to race around the track by yourself for a 5 to 8 minute racing session. Click here for more information.
