MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Halloween festivities at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach have become so popular that the campground has added another weekend of events, Ocean Lakes has announced.
Family-friendly activities will take place Oct. 18-19, Oct. 25-26, and Nov. 1-2. Activities are for registered guests of the campground only, so anyone interested in attending are encouraged to reserve a campsite or house rental soon, before any of the Halloween weekends are completely booked.
All three weekends will feature the same festivities full of traditional activities and entertainment such as pumpkin carving contests, costume contests (human and pet), a magic show, and trick or treating.
“Our Halloween celebrations have become so popular that this year we had to add an additional weekend,” said Barb Krumm, director of marketing and public relations at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “Our guests enjoy the variety of Halloween-themed activities that we have, and they know that they can relax and have fun because of our safe and secure family environment.”
Each weekend begins on Friday night with a Spooktacular Magic Show. This evening of free entertainment begins at 7 p.m. in the Recreation Center.
On Saturday, a full day of planned Halloween-themed activities are designed to please the young and young at heart, according to a press release from the campground. Activities include The Great Pumpkin Search and Scavenger Hunt, where guests search the campground for hidden pumpkins. There will be costume contests for adults, groups, children, and pets. Guests can also participate in Halloween games and traditional activities like a Pumpkin Carving/Decorating Contest, and the kids’ favorite tradition, Trick or Treating. The entire family can enjoy going camper to camper by golf cart collecting candy.
In the evening, guests of the campground can participate in the Creepy Site Crawl by decorating their sites in Halloween motif. Guests cast ballots Saturday evening, after they tour the spooky sites throughout the campground, to vote for the best decorated sites. In addition, there will be a free Comedy Hypnosis Show where guests are entertained by volunteers who become rappers, ballet dancers or partake in silly contests, states the release.
“Our guests love the family atmosphere with their children or grandchildren,” said Krumm. “Many of our guests decorate their campsites and really get into the spirit of things. Ocean Lakes Halloween Weekends have become a family tradition for many who join us to create happy memories that will last a lifetime.”
