Broadway at the Beach: The public is invited to join Golf Holiday and the City of Myrtle Beach at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, September 11, for dedication of a September 11 memorial. In 2011, Myrtle Beach received a steel beam from the north tower of the World Trade Center as a “thank you” from New York City firefighters for the hospitality they received here in the months after terrorist attacks. That beam is featured in the memorial on 29th Avenue North at Broadway at the Beach. The site is adjacent to the Cub Scouts’ Unity Memorial, also remembering the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
The Dead Dog Saloon proudly presents the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 Benefit. Doors open at 10 AM. Twelve bands will be starting at 11 AM.

The city of North Myrtle Beach will hold a commemorative 9 11 Candlelight Vigil. The Lions Club begins the day by welcoming individuals to the city by waving American flags on North Myrtle Beach bridges. An evening ceremony begins at 7:00 pm in the Horseshoe (end of Main Street). Rolling Thunder will ride motorcycles into the event to publicize the POW-MIA issue, followed by several color guards. After the presentation of a remembrance wreath for all fallen Americans by the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety and Fire Department will join everyone on the beach for a twenty-one gun salute by the Marine Corp League. Complete silence and only a glow from the crowd’s candles light up the night as Taps is played and the dedicated wreath is taken out to sea for our fallen Americans to rest.
