The Native Son Salt Games brought athletes to Myrtle Beach Saturday where the competitions were held on the former Pavilion site and on the beach.

The team and individual contests drew thousands of competitors from across the country to compete in a wide variety of events ranging from weightlifting, wrestling, volleyball, crossfit, surfing and more.

Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes who was named Sun Fun King Saturday afternoon said he was very pleased with having Sun Fun and the Salt Games in town this weekend.

“It shows the city is a great place for family fun for visitors and locals,” Rhodes said. “I’m especially glad the Sun Fun is back and I hope it gets bigger every year. It’s an important part of the city’s history.”
