Ninth Avenue North on the west side of Kings Highway will be open to customers and employees of businesses along Ninth Avenue North.  Don’t worry…  All businesses affected are aware of the plan!  The Myrtle Beach Police Department, along with Community Service Officers and Citizens Police Academy Alumni will man the bike racks to allow customers, employees and Taxi/Ride Shares to come and go as needed.

If you are attending the Carolina Country Music Fest, you'll have to go through a metal detector.  Before you get to the gate, make sure you have the right bag.  This year CCMF will require people use clear bags no larger than 12" by 6" by 12.  The only exception is a small clutch roughly the size of your hand.  If you don't have one CCMF will offer them to buy in parking lots and at the entrance for $10.
