Myrtle Beach celebrated its 75th birthday Saturday night, but visitors got the presents, including free cupcakes from two reality television stars.
The party along Ocean Blvd. featured live performances from beach music legends "The Catalinas" and "The Original Drifters." An attempt at the Guinness World Record for tallest birthday cake made of cupcakes also took place. The desserts were provided by Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, stars of the TLC reality series, "DC Cupcakes." After the record attempt, the crowd got free cupcakes.
The City of Myrtle Beach and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce both turn 75-years-old this year.
The festivities continue on Sunday with The Salt Games at Plyler Park, featuring a tug-of-war, volleyball, and yoga.
