9th Annual Motorcoach Festival is ABA Top 100 Event

s chairman of Coastal Network Cooperative,

I would like to cordially offer your groups an invitation to the 2011 Holiday FantaSea, Myrtle Beach’s 9th annual Motorcoach Festival. Co-sponsored by Coast- al Network Cooperative and the Myrtle Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, the festival will be held November 29 and December 2, 2011, at the Palace Theatre from 9:30-11:30 a.m. each morning. Admission is free to visiting

groups when they stay a mini- mum of one night in Myrtle Beach area accommodations. The event, re-named “Holiday FantaSea” two years ago, was conceived to thank visiting tours for coming to the Myrtle Beach

by David Bodle

area. It has maintained its origi- nal mission and grown to be a very special attraction—with award-winning entertainment, spectacular giveaways and a ton of Southern Hospitality. In 2011 the festival became

a repeat winner when it was again named one of ABA’s Top 100 Events and Festivals. The Top 100 is an annual compen- dium (chosen from hundreds of festivals and events) of the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. Upon arrival, Coastal Network Cooperative volunteers welcome each motorcoach tour at the main entrance of the Palace Theatre. Entering the theatre, spectacularly decorated for the holiday season, visitors are again welcomed and escorted to their seats.

For the next two hours Santa

and his helpers emcee a program of fabulous entertainment and gift basket drawings during set changes. Each morning culmi- nates with the big drawing and presentation of a $500 grand prize gift certificate to a local shopping destination. Thousands of motorcoach

tours visit the Myrtle Beach area every year. “Group tours are vital to

the Myrtle Beach area’s visitor base,” according to Danna Lilly, Myrtle Beach Area CVB director

of sales. “The festival provides a wonderful opportunity to promote the Myrtle Beach area as a premier destination and to thank our guests for visiting.”

Plans are underway and reservations have already been received for the 9th Annual Holiday FantaSea November 29 and December 2, 2011. Reserve space through your hotel’s sales manager for this outstanding holiday event. For additional information, you may call the Myrtle Beach CVB at 800-488-8998.
