Oh, Canada! Canucks invade Myrtle Beach
Myrtle Beach is such a popular destination for Canadians this time of year that Myrtle Beach started a festival for our mostly-friendly neighbors to the North. The festival includes events like the National Shag Dance Championship, International Kitefest and a St. Patricks Day Parade. There’s also history tours and concerts.
That’s great, but all that stuff is really just an excuse for Canadians to get together and engage in their national pasttime of drinking beer. I’ve always liked playing with Canadians on the golf course, as well as drinking beer with them both on the course and afterward. They don’t bitch about the food, like the French do, they don’t bitch about the watered-down beer like the Germans do, and they don’t blither on and on about “real” football – i.e., soccer – like the British. It’s a good thing they don’t mix– the French, German and British mainly show up in Myrtle Beach late October/early November.
Top five reasons Canucks come to Myrtle Beach
– Freaky Tiki wet t-shirt contest
– To get the hell away from Anne Murray
– To get away from all that press coverage of Gretzky’s gambling scandal
– To see “real” ice hockey, the Myrtle Beach Thunderboltz!
– John Candy would have wanted it this way.
