The town of Carolina Beach, N.C. will again host its popular "Film and Fireworks Series" this summer, beginning May 24, 2009, weather permitting. Every Sunday throughout the summer, visitors and locals can enjoy free, family-friendly movies at Carolina Beach Lake Park. Every Thursday, a fireworks display will begin at 9 p.m. on the beach near the boardwalk. And again this year, live music will be performed from 6pm to 9 pm as a lead-up to the Thursday fireworks.
"The Film and Fireworks Series is the centerpiece of another summer of affordable fun at Carolina Beach," said Kim Hufham, President/CEO of the Wilmington/Cape Fear Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau. "It's perfect for a long-weekend getaway. You can enjoy live music and a spectacular fireworks display on Thursday; hang out at the beach and other attractions at Carolina Beach on Saturday and during the day Sunday; and cap off the weekend with a free movie in the park on Sunday evening. Since the films, live music and fireworks are all free, it's a great, affordable way for families to have a vacation at the beach."
All the movies are family friendly and concessions will be available at both the film venue and the fireworks. You will be able to purchase popcorn, candy, soft drinks, cotton candy, and more, all at a reasonable price. If you prefer, you may bring your own food and beverages as well.
