- The 60th Annual Sun Fun Festival continues in Myrtle Beach at the Market Common, Friday, June 3rd through Sunday, June 5th. Click here for a full schedule of events. Saturday will bring us the World’s Largest Convertible Car Show, and a guest appearance by Sophie and Katherine from the TLC show “DC Cupcakes”. I mention it because my daughters and I are absolutely thrilled. We waited for an hour and a half for cupcakes during a recent Washington DC trip and they were delish! We’re excited to meet the women responsible for making them. They will be presenting a custom cupcake sculpture for the event and signing autographs from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. I was able to snag a picture from their Facebook page that shows Katherine working on the sculpture! There will be food vendors, entertainment, activities, wakeboard demonstrations, a NASCAR simulator, and celebrity cars!
