Bringing the Beach to the DNC

The Myrtle Beach Area, S.C., Chamber of Commerce is taking advantage of the local and national media attention that Charlotte, N.C., is garnering thanks to this week’s Democratic National Convention. As part of a promotional campaign highlighting Myrtle Beach as a vacation destination, the chamber, working with Myrtle Beach’s CVB, arranged for two sand sculptures—one of President Obama and the other of the Democratic donkey symbol—to be built on one of Charlotte’s busiest streets during the convention. The sand came from South Carolina, traveling the 175 miles separating Charlotte from Myrtle Beach. According to Nora Battle, the chamber's media communications manager, "We're a bipartisan beach with a big dose of Southern hospitality.”
