Myrtle Beach 4th of July Events

Salute from the Shore Myrtle Beach

Salute from the Shore

One of the area's most popular 4th of July event is Salute from the Shore. Friends Johnny Folsom and Toddy Smith and their sons wanted to create an accessible opportunity for South Carolina beachgoers to honor our armed forces by organizing a “Salute from the Shore” of a military flyover of the entire South Carolina coast each Independence Day. This year's show will include F16s from the Shaw Air Force Base and Military C-17s and privately owned vintage planes.

On July 4th, grab a huge flag or get creative and head to the beach! Capture your salute and send it in to the team at Salute from the Shore to show your appreciation for the armed forces.
