NMB Public Safety Officials Provide Motorist Alerts Regarding July 4th Cherry Grove Pier Fireworks Show

The North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Safety urges people who go to the July 4th, 9:30pm-10:00pm professional fireworks show at the Cherry Grove Pier to be aware of the following laws:
  • Discharging fireworks inside the city limits of North Myrtle Beach, including on the beach, is prohibited.
  • Operating a golf cart after dark is prohibited.
Public safety officials also urge motorists to be especially careful and patient when driving in the Cherry Grove area just prior to and following the fireworks show because the roadways will be very congested. 

Also, immediately following the fireworks show, public safety personnel will initiate a reverse traffic pattern in Cherry Grove in order to accommodate the large number of vehicles leaving the Cherry Grove area.  During the traffic reversal the following will occur:
  • Ocean Boulevard traffic will not be allowed to turn on to Sea Mountain Highway. Ocean Boulevard traffic will be allowed to move northbound and southbound only.
  • Motorists must access Highway 17 North via 11th Avenue North.
  • All northbound traffic on Nixon Street and Duffy Street must make a right hand turn on to Sea Mountain Highway.
  • All eastbound traffic on Sea Mountain Highway must turn right at Duffy Street and will be rerouted to Ocean Boulevard via 22nd Avenue North. 
  • Once fireworks show traffic has exited the Cherry Grove area, public safety personnel will initiate normal traffic patterns.
Those who traditionally enjoy the fireworks show while sitting on the beach should be aware that high tide will occur at 8:13 p.m. on July 4th, minimizing seating space on the beach.
