Now is a great time to get a visit to Pleasure Island during the 2013 holiday season on the books. There are many beloved traditions to participate in, and there's always lots to do in the quaint beach towns of Carolina Beach & Kure Beach as they are transformed into the "Island of Lights."

From November 29th on there will be a beautiful holiday light display at the Carolina Beach Lake, the perfect place to take an evening stroll. Lights and other festive decorations will start to pop up all over the island around this time as well!

Find great holiday gifts at the many unique shops, boutiques, and galleries on Pleasure Island. Learn more: Shopping (select "Retail Services / Shopping / Specialty Shops" as the Attraction Type.)

And of course your favorite North Carolina beaches are here for you at any time of year! Whether it's one of those bonus warm winter days or there's a seasonable chill in the air you can enjoy a stroll along the sand with family or friends.

Come for a day, a weekend, or longer! You can often find accommodations such as beach houses, condos, and hotel/motel rooms at very discounted rates when compared to the height of the summer season.

Dragon Boat Regatta & Festival at Carolina Beach Town Marina

The First Annual Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and Festival

October 25 and 26, 2013
Carolina Beach Town Marina

Hosted by the Town of Carolina Beach, Got-em-on Live Bait Club, Carolina Beach Fire Department, and Carolina Beach Arts and Activities Committee

This event brings together sports, health and wellness, and arts to celebrate our island community. Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Carolina Beach Volunteer Fire Department and the Got-Em-On-Live-Bait Club to help fund the clubʼs annual Disabled Sportsmanʼs Fishing Tournaments.

Team Practice runs with coaching are on Thursday and Friday, October 24th and 25th between 3PM - 6:30PM. Each team is encouraged to get in one practice run. Race Day is Saturday, October 26th starting at 8am.

Gather a group of friends, customers, family or co-workers and make plans to field a team and get out on the water. A dragon boat is a colorful 45-foot long watercraft that resembles a canoe. It's manned by a crew of 20, plus a steersman at the stern of the boat, and a drummer/pace setter to set the pace. Teams are encouraged to signup 22-24 members to cover any absences on race day.

Teams can be made up of people of all ages, genders and skill levels. No experience is required. The key to successful and fun dragon boating is the ability to paddle in sync. Race teams should be setup with equal amounts of males and females participating. The races are fast and furious. Each race lasts about two minutes, and all teams will have at least two heats during race day. Substitutions with signed up alternates are encouraged.

Come join the festivities as a Team, Vendor or Spectator! Email Brenda.butler@carolinabeach.org
