SLIDESHOW: Local 9/11 memorials and ceremonies

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Many events, remembrances, memorials and ceremonies are being held around the Grand Strand and Pee Dee on Friday to honor those who lost their lives 14 years ago.

The Myrtle Beach community held a Unity Memorial on 29th Avenue North on Friday morning, and observed a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., when the first plane hit the World Trade Center tower 14 years ago.

Beginning in 2011, to honor and show respect to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, North Myrtle Beach Public Safety personnel, dressed head to toe in the same gear and equipment as their brothers and sisters in New York, walked nine miles along the beach. That tradition continued this year, and now includes other agencies, military personnel, and families.

In another tribute to the fallen, several people stood at the Highway 31 overpass at Highway 544 in Socastee, waving a large American flag.

See a full list of events and memorials happening today around the Grand Strand and Pee Dee here.
