July and 13 in August. The schedule is great for Spring Breakers coming to Myrtle Beach with
homestands April 13-19 and April 25-27.

will feature 14 Thirsty Thursdays, 11 Wiener Wednesdays, postgame fireworks, and more! While the full
promotional schedule and fireworks shows will be released at a later date, shows can be expected on
Opening Day as well as July 4.
