Ocean Rescue and Life Guard Services Come to an End with the Season

As the season comes to a close, so does the end of ocean rescue and life guard services in the Pleasure Island area. The regular lifeguard season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with limited guards on patrol through mid-September. While the beach is still plenty enjoyable this time of year, it’s extremely important for swimmers and surfers to use caution while being active in the water as there is no one on duty to watch over them.


The Carolina Beach Police Department Annual Bicycle Rodeo

On Saturday, September 10th, the Carolina Beach Police Department (CBPD), in conjunction with the Town of Carolina Beach, hosts their annual Bicycle Rodeo, a free event from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Carolina Beach Recreation Center at 1121 N. Lake Park Blvd. in Carolina Beach. The event features bicycle safety information and demonstrations, safe riding habits, bicycle repairs, bicycle registration, raffles, free t-shirts, entertainment, games, and food.

Last year’s Bicycle Rodeo began with fittings for brand new bike helmets for kids, provided free of charge. Then they got to test their bicycle safety skills on an obstacle course with real-life situations that teaches kids to look all ways before crossing streets, walking their bikes safely across cross walks, recognizing traffic lights and stop signs, identifying rail road crossings, handling their bicycles correctly, and avoiding obstacles like stray dogs. The skills kids learn at the Rodeo help inspire confidence to ride their bikes safely and have fun doing it.


Don't Miss Your Last Chance for the Kure Beach Market!

While fall brings with it enjoyable cooler temperatures, quiet beaches, and patio fire pits, it also means the weekly Kure Beach Market comes to a close for the season.

Tuesday, August 30th is your last chance to shop for locally grown fruits and vegetables, hand crafted goods, jewelry, cooking sauces and spices, fine art, and much more, at the Ocean Front Park. Visiting the open air market is a favorite activity for visitors and residents alike.

From mid-June to the end of August, the Kure Beach Market is open every Tuesday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Shoppers can browse products from more than thirty vendors while taking in the amazing Atlantic Ocean views at the popular Kure Beach Ocean Front Park & Pavilion. Local farmers and culinary professionals sell fresh baked goods, local wine, fresh peaches, watermelon, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, and a variety of other fresh, seasonal produce to encourage and promote locally grown, sustainable, healthy eating. North Carolina artisans are also on hand with their homemade crafts, jewelry, pottery, painted glass, textiles, and metal art.

The Kure Beach Market brings awareness to our southern history of agriculture, supports the local economy, and promotes the spirit of community. Admission is free, and the venue is pet-friendly and family-friendly. The park itself features a playground, benches, swings, raingardens, and a “tot lot” playground for small children. So come help support our local growers and artisans. Don’t miss out on the last chance of the season! On August 30, visit the market as you take in the fresh air and breathtaking water views while you shop, wander, and enjoy!
