      Rides might return to Myrtle Beach Pavilion site

      Rides and games could be returning to the Myrtle Beach Pavilion site seven years after the oceanfront attraction was demolished.

      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- Rides and games could be returning to the Myrtle Beach Pavilion site seven years after the oceanfront attraction was demolished.

      The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that the city has received an application from Strates Shows in Orlando, Fla., to operate a summer-long carnival on vacant land at the former Pavilion site.

      Under the proposal, the carnival would be set up on a four-acre site next to the Adrenaline Adventures Zip Line that occupies another part of the property.

      The Pavilion was removed by the Burroughs & Chapin Co. back in 2006. The company has been negotiating with Strates to bring in the carnival.

      If the city approves, the plan is for the carnival to operate this season from June 8 through Sept. 6.
