If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to set your watch to “island time”, then you will not want to miss these Pleasure Island activities set for Thursday, December 31st and Friday, January 1st

The Island of Lights New Year’s Eve Celebration

  • December 31, 2015
  • 9:00 pm
  • Carolina Beach Boardwalk

Time Square has nothing on this celebration! Please join us and bring your friends and family for an incredible blastoff into 2016. There will be a variety of ways to ring in the New Year all along the boardwalk, including raffles, party favors, a DJ, dancing and of course the big beach ball will drop precisely at midnight! This is another wonderful FREE event!


Shop Local - It’s Easy to Find Great Holiday Gifts on Pleasure Island!

There’s a special feeling many folks get when they cross the Snow’s Cut Bridge and head towards the quaint island communities of Carolina and Kure beaches. Of course it is directly related to the coastal vibe and instant tranquility that being minutes from the ocean provides. Prior to settling in, plenty of residents and visitors make an extra effort to “have everything they need” with a goal of leaving the island as little possible-and who can blame them?

As the holiday season quickly nears, there’s no need to waste time, energy and gas, endlessly searching for holiday must-haves for your friends, family and home decorating needs because it’s all right here! This year, we encourage you to shop local and discover the amazing variety of unique finds offered by the island’s charming shops and boutiques.


Upcoming Holiday Events on Pleasure Island

We can not take the credit, however, for the past few days the unseasonably mild temps and gorgeous blue skies are certainly what could be called, “Chamber of Commerce Weather”. The warm temps are predicted to last for a few more days and will make it easy to take in the holiday sights and sounds along beautiful Pleasure Island. Along with all of the holiday goings-on, there are fun and funky shops, outstanding restaurants and cafes, high-rise hotels, charming inns and cottages. It’s an idyllic place any time of year, but especially during the holidays!

Sometimes taking advantage of what an area has to offer requires a little extra planning, so here are a few ideas to consider for your holiday fun:

The Kure Beach Christmas Show

  • Saturday, December 12th, 6:30-8 pm

This FREE event is a local favorite, especially among the younger crowd! From 6:30 until 8 pm, on K Avenue, right next to the Kure Beach Fishing Pier, costumed holiday characters will be performing seasonal tunes sung by an all-local cast. There will also be appearances by Frosty, Harriet the Hippo, the Grinch, Olaf, Anna, Elsa and Rudolph! Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be on hand with a group of their most talented elves. For utmost in enjoyment, please bring a chair and wear appropriate clothing, because it always seems to snow during this very special event. Call 910-458-8216 for more information.


Shop Pleasure Island and Discover Unique Gift Ideas!

If you stop a moment and consider last year’s holiday gifts, both the ones you purchased and received, are there any standouts? Chances are, you’ll be hard pressed to recall just one memorable item! Finding unique presents for friends and family is tough, especially in this age of online shopping. However, sometimes the solution to finding a few “wow factor” gifts is right in your own backyard. This year, please consider buying local and supporting many of our valued chamber members. Not only will you save on time, money and gas, you’ll also find a wonderful selection of unique things to choose from!


Food Donations Needed for the Help Center of Federal Point

The holidays are a time of friends, family, peace and giving - and with your help, we can give more to our less fortunate friends and families in our community.

The Help Center of Federal Point,  an emergency, short term assistance center for residents of Carolina Beach, is currently in need of non-perishable food items. There will be a food drive taking place during the Island of Lights Christmas Parade this Friday, December 4 at 7:30 pm.
