HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Vehicle traffic is expected to be impacted by a boat parade along the Intracoastal Waterway over the weekend.

According to information from the South Carolina Department of Transportation, the boat parade is scheduled for Sunday, July 26, starting at 1 p.m.

Motorists should expect delays at the Socastee Swing Bridge due to bridge openings for marine traffic.

According to the event posted on social media, it is a Myrtle Beach Trump Boat Parade that will start just south of the Boathouse. It will head north and end at the American flag in front of Taco Mundo and Lulu’s in North Myrtle Beach.
