The 2017 Myrtle Beach Fall Bike Rally is from Oct. 2-7, and the schedule is filled with live bands, bikini contests, pudding wrestling and, we can only hope, some great weather along the Grand Strand.
The Rat Hole, 3809 Socastee Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, is where we start our trek through some of the best entertainment along the beach. The bar opens Oct. 2 with chocolate pudding wrestling daily, $1 beer all day every day and a motorcycle rodeo from Oct. 4-7.
Heading further south down the Strand, be sure to check out the Fall Rally Kick Off Party at 4 p.m. Oct. 2 at O’Keefe’s Irish Pub in Murrells Inlet.
At some point during your trip here, you need to make plans to see Joe Santana’s Kingfish, who will be at Suck Bang Blow in Murrells Inlet, at 2 p.m. Tuesday. No need to leave SBB, as All My Rowdy Friends will play at 8 p.m. that night, as well.
By Wednesday, the competition for the almighty dollar really heats up as several businesses vie for the attention of the fall biker.
Head over to Harley’s Roadhouse in Little River for a Backyard BBQ at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Carve some time out to check out Tru Sol at 6 p.m. at Spokes and Bones Saloon in Garden City.
You’ll want to make some time Wednesday night to check out Cowboy – A Kid Rock Tribute, who hits the Suck Bang Blow stage at 8 p.m.

If the traffic congestion is getting to you, head back to the Boathouse in Myrtle Beach, where they have their Free Show Friday with West Virginia’s own Davisson Brothers starting at 9 p.m.
