Say Goodbye to 2020 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The end of 2020 is around the corner and many of us are ready to celebrate the New Year more than ever before. However, parties and gatherings may look a little different this year for a few reasons—namely masking and social distancing requirements and a statewide ban on alcohol sales after 11 p.m. due to Covid-19. But Myrtle Beach area businesses have still managed to come up with some fun and creative events for those wanting to celebrate the arrival of 2021. Here are some of our favorites:

There are two ways to get tickets: 1) Present a receipt totaling $25 or more from any restaurant or retailer located at The Market Common dated on or after December 21 at The Market Common Management office during business hours until December 30 or 2) Visit the ticket tent inside Peace, Love & Little Donuts on December 31.
