Christmas Regatta will light up waterway on Saturday
Each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the curtain rises on this spectacular maritime parade, the Intracoastal Christmas Regatta, as it begins at Little River Inlet at 5 p.m. and travels south, arriving at Dock Holidays Marina in North Myrtle Beach at 7 p.m.|
Gather your family and watch this colorful boat parade as it passes various viewing areas along the waterway from Little River to Dock Holidays Marina.
Enter your boat In the parade this year. Fill out a parade application online or call Susie Watson for entry information at 843-249-8888. No matter how you participate, do not forget to bring a new toy and drop it off at a collection point at any marina in Little River or North Myrtle Beach.
If the parade ends and you have not yet donated your toy, you can take it to Harbourgate Marina at 2120 Sea Mtn. Hwy. in North Myrtle Beach. If you are having a party or attending a party, be sure to take a toy for the kids.
“The children of Horry County do believe and we can help make their dreams come true with your help. With your donations of new, unwrapped toys and/or monetary offerings, we can reach our goal — to make sure there is not a single child without a present to open on Christmas morning,” said Susie Watson, one of the organizers of this event, now in its 32nd year.
