9/11 Memorial Vigil (9/11)

Commemorate our loved ones that fell victim to the 9-11 attacks. The North Myrtle Beach Lions Club begins the day by welcoming individuals to the city by waving American flags on North Myrtle Beach bridges. An evening ceremony begins at 7:00 pm with ocean view backgrounds, located in the Horseshoe (end of Main Street). Rolling Thunder will ride motorcycle into the event to publicize the POW-MIA issue, followed by several color guards. After the presentation of a remembrance wreath for all fallen Americans by the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety and Fire Department join everyone on the beach for a twenty-one gun salute by the Marine Corp League. Complete silence and only a glow from the crowd's candles light up the night as Taps is played and the dedicated wreath is taken out to sea for our fallen Americans to rest.
