The Myrtle Beach State Park hosts Park Palooza on Saturday

I say it time and time again.  The Myrtle Beach State Park is my absolute favorite spot in our area.  We camp and visit there all the time.  The running joke is that my goal for retirement is to park our RV there and weasel my way into being a campground host.  That way I’ll have my “free” beach “house” and my regular house, just a few miles away.  But that’s neither here nor there…

The Saturday, April 7, 2012, the park will host one of their biggest events of the year – Park Palooza.  The day is packed full of educational and entertaining programs for the entire family.  You’ll learn the fundamental of starting and maintaining a campfire, as well as what to cook over it.  Whoooo, whooo wants to take a class on owlology?  You can even build your dream house out of blocks on the beach and see if it could withstand a storm surge of water. 

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Admission is to the park is required, which is $5 for adults. $3.25 for SC seniors (age 65 and up), $3 for children age 6-15, and free for children 5 and younger.  That is, of course, unless you bit the bullet and bought that State Park Passport annual pass.  Then it’s free to you (and me).  :-)

A few of the programs have a small fee.  Those are noted on the schedule below.  There will also be food and treats for sale at the event.

You can check out the full schedule of events here, and learn more about the Myrtle Beach State Park here.  You’ll love it too.
