Video of Spontaneous Block Party On Myrtle Beach Strip Goes Viral As Quarantine Lifts


In one of the most Myrtle Beach things that’s ever happened, a large group of beach goers clogged up the main strip with golf carts and started a spontaneous block party just days after the governor lifted restrictions on hotel reservations and restaurants.

The event was captured by King Yari, who was eating lunch at a nearby restaurant. In his Facebook post, Yari commentes;

“This happened today while enjoying lunch at Beach House Bar & Grill, a flashMOB of mopeds, golf carts, motorcycles, people, music and no social distancing.🤦🏾‍♂️”

As of this morning, the video has already been shared over 18,000 times and viewed over 763,000 times:

The dance party took place in the middle of the day on Sunday, May 17th, just 6 days after the governor began lifting restrictions for the state:

As of this morning, South Carolina has 9,381 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 416 deaths. Myrtle Beach’s Horry County has 333 confirmed cases and 21 confirmed COVID-19 related deaths.
