First Annual "Island Day--A Celebration of Our Island Community" September 26th

Carolina Beach, NC — Whether you live in Kure Beach or Carolina Beach, everyday we hear someone say “we are so lucky to live in paradise.” So, let’s take time to “smell the sea breeze” and celebrate our beautiful island community.

Join us at the First Annual Island Day celebration, scheduled for September 26th from 1 to 5 pm around the lake at Carolina Beach. Island Day is a joint event between the towns of Carolina and Kure Beach and will be a day of fun for all citizens of our island.

This year’s event is sponsored by the Carolina Beach Arts & Activities Committee, and is a cooperative effort between the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce, Boardwalk Makeover Group, and police, fire, public works, and parks & recreations departments from both towns.

“We see this as a day to bring our Island together for an old fashion, hometown picnic to celebrate the end of a great summer, and the wonderful life we share.” says Dan Wilcox, Carolina Beach Councilman and member of the Boardwalk Makeover Group.

Think Andy Griffith but “beach style”, wearing shorts and flip flops….red checkered tablecloths, hot dogs, sack races, dunking booth, and a host of other family activities, topped off with some great music and lots of family and friends.

Dean Lambeth, Mayor of Kure Beach, welcomes this opportunity to work with Carolina Beach in a joint effort to bring island residents together, “We all have worked hard to create this island treasure and we look forward to starting an annual tradition of celebrating our slice of paradise.”

Christine Higgins, with the Carolina Beach Arts and Activities Committee, is calling for volunteers to help for the one-day event. “This is a fun gathering for our community and we want the entire island to participate.

We are also seeking help from non-profit organizations, groups, and individuals that might want to provide family related displays or activities, or simply help with event organization. So email me if you want to get involved.” (

Mark you calendars now – September 26th, rain date October 3rd. And keep a look out for more information about Island Day – A Celebration of Our Island Community.
