Taste of the Coast moves to new North Myrtle Beach location

Now in its seventh year, the Taste of the Coast is trying out a different venue: the new North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. The change in location allows the event to have room for even more restaurants, live entertainment and children’s activities.

On Saturday, May 3, the complex will be full of family fun and good food. Some of last year’s participating restaurants include Castano’s Italian Steakhouse, Sticky Fingers, Dirty Don’s, The Melting Pot, 21 Main at North Beach, Olive Garden and T-Bonz. Live entertainment will be on stage and among the crowd, from local bands and Risen Christ’s own dance team, Faith in Motion, to balloon artists and magicians.

Proceeds from the event benefit students of Risen Christ Lutheran School, a Christian school for pre-K through high school children. Through fundraising efforts like these, the school does not have to deny any student admittance due to economic circumstances. Risen Christ  has also teamed up with North Myrtle Beach to put together a food drive for North Strand Helping Hand, an organization that provides emergency aid to those in need in the North Strand area. Every year, the event has managed to raise more than 1,000 pounds of food from the drive, showing that you can have fun and make a difference.
