Grand Strand kids celebrate magnificent moms

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Medieval Times teamed up to help celebrate magnificent moms with the 5th annual "My Magnificent Mom" contest.

Children were asked to submit essays about what makes their mom so special, and on Wednesday, three winners got a special visit from the Chick-Fil-A Cows, the Sonic Tater Tot and some Medieval times characters.

"It's a wonderful way for students to create and essay about their mothers, and of course focusing on the special qualities and community outreach and other things that their mother does to help in the community," said Medieval Times marketing and sales manager Jennifer Willard.

The winning moms will get a shopping spree to Tanger Outlets and tickets to Ripley's Aquarium, The Palace Theater and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
