Santa on the Beach - Photos and Fun

At Myrtle Beach State Park

Santa Claus is on the beach making his list and checking it twice! Enjoy some holiday fun at Myrtle Beach State Park. Bring your camera for a one of a kind family photo. Santa will be on the beach from 9:30am until 1:30pm with a 15 minute cookie break at 11:30am. Santa also loves pets, so feel free to bring your pet (always on a leash). Holiday activities will include holiday beach games, crafts, unique park holiday stories, marine inspired carnival games, and more! Escape the holiday stress and spend the day in the great outdoors! Look for the schedule of events on top of the Programs and Events page by mid-November. Santa will be available for photos rain or shine.
