Myrtle Beach set to celebrate Can-Am Days

South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach area is getting set to celebrate the 51st annual Canadian-American Days March 10-18 by welcoming Canadian and American visitors with a line-up of special events, giveaways, discounts and concerts taking place along the Grand Strand. Can-Am Days attendees can choose from a variety of largely free events and activities, including concerts, the festival celebration expo, St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival, and more. Discounts and special offers are also available for area attractions, restaurants, golf and services. “Can-Am Days celebrate our snowbird visitors, who escape the cold and snow for the moderate climate and wealth of attractions in the Myrtle Beach area,”says Brad Dean, MBACC president and CEO. “Many of these visitors have been travelling to our destination for decades, and with every passing year we strive to create new memories for each generation.”The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce introduced Canada Days in 1961 to attract Canadian families during their spring school break. The name was changed to Canadian-American Days in 1963. It is regarded as the first international festival organized in South Carolina. (
