Myrtle Beach has abundant boating and shipping history as well.

    October Events in The Market Common

    Workspace location and design are a reflection of a company’s culture. It also has the power to shape it. Scott Trembley and Jeremy Jenks, the owners of Keller Williams The Trembley Group Real Estate are sensitive to the behavioral cues embedded in office environments and how they intuitively adjust workers speech, mannerisms, and body language as they adapt to our surroundings.

    While almost all new office designs continue to support an idea of the individual is the center of work, Scott and Jeremy believe fundamental knowledge lies with the team. People learn best in teams, and that the strongest teams combine diverse individuals with different skills and backgrounds. Scott and Jeremy found the perfect place for the Keller Williams The Trembley Group home base in The Market Common. The company’s offices foster a sense of team space and belonging, and it plays a key role in orienting the individual to the team identity.

    And The Market Common is the perfect location for the company’s offices.  In addition to being almost exactly centrally located on the Grand Strand, the Market Common reflects the Keller Williams The Trembley Group company culture. It is a comfortable place where Keller Williams The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals feel at home.

    The Market Common is an upscale residential and shopping experience with a sophisticated small downtown feel. It is a place that the company’s clients frequent and a place where they also feel at home. From books to coffee to unique gifts to Apple computers, The Market Common has it covered. The area has fine and casual dining and plenty of activities for the entire family.

    Here are a couple of events The Market Common has planned for October. Make plans to attend and while you’re there, call Keller Williams The Trembley Group for an appointment to discuss your Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand real estate buying, selling, or investment needs.

    The 15th Annual Little River ShrimpFest

    October 12 – 13, 2019, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

    Historic Little River Waterfront, Little River, SC

    Sixty miles up US 17 to the north of Georgetown, on the opposite end of the Grand Strand, is Little River. Little River is one of South Carolina’s most quaint fishing villages. It is the oldest, and certainly one of the most unique, towns along the Grand Strand. Many of the Keller Williams The Trembley Group Realtors love Little River, the northernmost town on the Grand Strand, known for its fresh seafood, fishing charters, annual blue crab festival, and historic centuries-old live oak trees. Little River is one of the last communities on the Grand Strand, where a slower pace of life still exists.

    Little River is just a short drive to all the Grand Strand’s famous attractions, signature golf courses, unique variety shows, shopping outlets, and world-class entertainment.

    Little River is home to two Las-Vegas-style casino gambling boats. Locals and tourists flock to the waterfront twice a day, every day, for world-class casino gambling excursions into international waters where gambling is legal.

    For those who love to play in the waterway instead of fish, there are Jet Ski rentals at the waterfront, as well as dock space and pontoon boat rentals, at Crickett Cove and Coquina Harbor marinas.

    There’s a quality of life that residents cherish, and visitors admire in our beautiful town on the north end of the Grand Strand.

    Little River is also home to generations of charter and commercial fishermen and shrimpers. Visitors can choose between short party-boat fishing trips near the shore, or spend an entire day fishing in the deep waters of the Gulf Stream.

    Every year, Little River celebrates its ties to the sea, fishing, and their economic impact with its Annual Little River ShrimpFest, this year on Saturday, Oct. 12th, 2019 and Sunday, Oct. 13th, 2019 from 9 AM to 5 PM on the historic Little River waterfront.

    Festival-goers can enjoy a children’s area, face painting, stilt walkers, balloon artists, two stages of live music, and approximately 150 different vendors, including a wide variety of art and craft vendors, business expos, and community organizations. The local waterfront restaurants will serve fresh local seafood, and festival shrimp (and other seafood) favorites will be available from a variety of talented food vendors.

    Originally called the Little River Shrimp & Jazz Festival, the name was changed to ShrimpFest in 2012 to broaden the appeal from its jazz influences to all genres of music. The festival is a family-friendly event offering live entertainment ranging from jazz to country, to pop, to rock – not to mention the area’s beach music heritage. Past festivals have showcased national acts such as Tim Reynolds, Elyse Testone, Nathan & the Zydeco ChaCha’s, Marlena Smalls, Bonerama and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

    Little River sits on the Intracoastal Waterway. The community’s roots lie in the shrimping and fishing industries. What better way to showcase the Little River waterfront than by offering a variety of traditional seafood specialties? Shrimp is highlighted and cooked in all sorts of unique and creative ways by the local Little River restaurants. But this little historic fishing village on the northernmost fringes of the Myrtle Beach area serves more than just shrimp of all kinds. Little River is renowned for its crab cake sandwiches, mahi-mahi, and more. Of course, landlubbers are offered their festival food favorites, too.

    While there is excellent music and food, the festival also features a wide variety of vendors. Over the years, the festival has grown to more than 150 vendors offering unique arts & crafts and featuring our local businesses and community organizations. Mineola and Waterfront Avenues are blocked to vehicular traffic, while the vendors line the streets. This is where festival-goers can stroll under the moss-draped live oaks, for an old fashioned southern street festival.

    2019 St. John’s Greek Festival

    October 17 – 20, 2019; Thursday, Friday & Saturday, 11:00 am; & Sunday, 12:00 pm  

    3301 33rd Avenue Ext. North, Myrtle Beach, SC

    The annual St. John’s Greek Festival, a celebration of Greek culture, cuisine and family fun, is one of some of the Keller Williams The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals most anticipated Myrtle Beach events of the fall.

    This year’s 28th annual event will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 17 through October 20. The company’s Realtors will get their fill of spanakopita, gyros, baklava, cookies, salads, pastries, breads and more as St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church hosts this tasty annual event. The event is fun for the whole family and offers inflatables, live performances and music, crafts, and vendors, as well as tours of the beautiful church.

    Every year, there’s something inviting about entering the festival. It’s almost impossible to resist the hundreds of pastries lining the sidewalk. Entering the main hall for an entrée, diners have a choice of traditional lamb or chicken gyros on fresh pita with tzatziki sauce, spices, lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Without a doubt, the gyros are the most commonly ordered meal.

    For a real taste of Greek culture, visitors should try the moussaka or pastichio. Moussaka is an eggplant casserole with layers of ground beef, cheese, potatoes, and a cream sauce. Pastichio is an interesting classic dish with ground beef, cinnamon, nutmeg and a cream sauce inside of baked macaroni. Every dish is a favorite, and the roasted Greek potatoes and Greek salad will be a perfect side!

    For those still hungry but not ready for dessert, move on to the spanakopita or tiropita. Both are made with cream cheese, egg and filo pastry. These delicious sides are guaranteed to fill you up. Spanakopita has spinach added to it so technically speaking, you’re eating your vegetables! The Dolmathes, a stuffed grape leaves and are hand-rolled perfection.

    Authentic Greek beer and imported wines wash down the best of any festival lunch or dinner. For those wanting a taste of Greek liquor, Ouzo shots are sold at the event.

    The 30th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show!   

    October 19 – 20, 2019

    On the Waterfront & Front Street, in Historic Georgetown, SC

    Few other areas in America contain more history or charm than Georgetown, South Carolina. Georgetown has long been known for its warm hospitality and Southern charm, from its earliest beginnings as the probable site of the first European settlement in North America in 1526, to its present status as a vibrant and gracious city of 9,000.

    The third oldest city in South Carolina, following Charleston and Beaufort, Georgetown was founded in 1729 and became an official port of entry in 1732. Before this, all foreign exports and imports had to pass through Charleston. This was now where one would pay duties and added freight. With the designation of Georgetown as a port of entry, the area’s merchants and planters could deal directly with all ports, bypassing Charleston.

    Before the Revolution, indigo was a major, profitable crop. After the Revolution, local planters turned to rice production. The swamps and low-lying areas adjacent to the tidal rivers and the African labor supply made the cultivation of rice highly profitable.  Acres of dense cypress swamps were cleared, and rice was cultivated in a system of flooded fields from the rivers by canals, ditches or floodgates.

    By 1840, Georgetown County produced nearly one-half of the total rice crop of the United States, and the port of Georgetown exported more rice than any port in the world. The local variety called “Carolina Gold” was in demand worldwide. Georgetown, South Carolina low country planters had the highest per capita income in all of the American colonies.

    After the Civil War, lumber met the need for an economical alternative to rice. The Atlantic Coast Lumber Company was incorporated in 1903. By 1914, it was the largest lumber producing plant on the East Coast. Commercial fishing has also become a significant industry. In recent years, retirees and vacationers have contributed to the economic well-being of the area.

    One can link Georgetown’s long and rich history to the sea. Combined with its diversity of cultures, Georgetown is an area known for its charm and beauty.

    Every year on the third weekend in October, Georgetown celebrates its relationship to the sea and its rich heritage with its annual Wooden Boat Show.  The show is considered one of the Southeast’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 140 classic wooden boats displayed on land and in the water. The show features children’s model boatbuilding, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food, and music. 

    One of the boat show’s unique attractions is Saturday morning’s Wooden Boat Challenge. That is when teams of two race to build a rowing skiff within a 4-hour time limit. The boat-builders test their boats for seaworthiness in a rowing relay on the Sampit River.

    Sunday is a fun-filled family-oriented day that includes a Corrugated Boat Regatta, and an Opti Pram Regatta. Check the schedule of all the events  and for updates at https://woodenboatshow.com/

    The Wooden Boat Show takes place on the waterfront and along Front Street in Historic Downtown Georgetown. Harbor Historical Association produces the show, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. All proceeds benefit the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
