KidzTime Festival Offers a Big Time Under the Big Top

With its long list of kid-friendly attractions – including amusement parks, putt-putt golf courses, go-kart tracks, water parks, 60-plus miles of white-sand beaches, and more – the Grand Strand is already known as one of the nation’s top family vacation destinations. And in mid-February, Myrtle Beach hot spot Broadway at the Beach is offering one more reason to treat the little ones to a Grand Strand getaway. Set for Saturday, February 24, 2018, the 17th Annual Broadway at the Beach KidzTime Festival is sure to put smiles on the faces of attendees both young and old.

Presented in a huge, heated, circus-style tent – and offering FREE admission – the KidzTime Festival features a collection of fun offerings to delight the kids. Among the highlights of the event are live performances, appearances by mascots and other favorite characters, inflatables, face painting, a petting zoo, more than 40 vendors, pony rides, fire engines, prizes and giveaways, and more. Favorite Marvel Comics web-slinger Spider-Man is even set to swing in for a visit! The festival fun gets started at 11 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m.

Located just a mile inland from The Caribbean Resort & Villas – via a straight shot and easy drive down 29th Avenue North – Broadway at the Beach is a kids’ playground even without the KidzTime Festival bonuses. In addition to loads of shopping and dining opportunities that the whole family can enjoy, the complex and surrounding area feature a wealth of attractions that are especially up the young ones’ alley. These include Broadway Grand Prix with its seven go-kart tracks, two mini-golf courses and indoor arcade; Dinosaurs the Exhibition with its animatronic replicas of T. rexes, triceratops and more prehistoric favorites; Ripley’s Aquarium with its 750,000-gallon, all-around shark tank; the Hollywood Wax Museum; and on-water roller coaster the Beach Rider Jet Boat.

And back at The Caribbean, there’s plenty more to keep the younger set entertained – even when the weather isn’t a fit for enjoying our outdoor water features. When not relaxing in our comfortable, spacious and well-appointed oceanfront rooms, your kids can grab a tube and go for a float in our indoor lazy river, splash around in our indoor pool and kiddie pool, or take a soak in one of our indoor hot tubs. Forget the swimsuits? No worries – the kids can also enjoy free and unlimited DVD rentals as part of our Sun & Fun Rewards program, which also provides free and discounted tickets to a collection of top area attractions. And when the sweet tooth strikes, our on-site Ben & Jerry’s can satisfy it by the scoop.

Book your getaway at The Caribbean Resort & Villas today for a Myrtle Beach trip that the whole family will enjoy! Whether you make it for the KidzTime Festival or at another time of year, the whole vacation crew can get in on all the family fun the Grand Strand has to offer.
