Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31, at the beach access near Plyler Park, the Salt Games attracts both athletes and spectators to take part in the festivities. Large crowds watch the competitions and enjoy a fun day in the sun, sand and surf in the downtown district. Get wet, sandy and sweaty or sit on the sidelines and take in all the action.

Sporting events include surfing, skateboarding, beach volleyball, paddleboarding, a 5K and kids run, beach wrestling and lifeguard games. Exercise challenges feature CrossFit UpDog, Yoga and Hula Hoop. More leisurely activities include a bikini contest, cornhole tournament, and hot dog and ice cream eating contests.Crossfit Challenge Salt Gamesphoto credit: Myrtle Beach Condo Rentals

All events are free and open to the public but participants must pay a small registration fee. For more information or to sign up for an event, visit
