LABOR DAY WEEK ON PLEASURE ISLAND (8-29 to 9-3)


Pleasure Island has a GREAT Labor Day  week of FREE activities for your vacationing and leisure-time fulfillment.  There is always something for everyone on our little slice of paradise

Please plan on joining us for the final Boardwalk Blast FREE concert on FRIDAY, August 31st from 6:30 until 9:30 featuring the Eastbound.

EASTBOUND
Modern Country would be the category that EastBound would land under if you were to look them up. But, if you have had the chance to see their LIVE show you would walk away finding it difficult to label them as “just” country. Over the years Country Music has welcomed artist from across the charts and EastBound finds great opportunity in that.With the influences of not only the Grand Ole Opry, but, Motown, & Rock the Eastbound show has something for everyone. Great song selection that makes even the non-country fan get up and sing along is their key ingredient.

2011 was an exciting year the guys. Winning the “Bluesapalooza” band competition at THE HOUSE OF BLUES in Myrtle Beach granted them the invitation to perform on the outside stage the entire summer. This recognition and exposure resulted in EastBound playing the hottest spots and becoming one of the top bands in the Myrtle Beach Area.

With over 100 shows to their credit and an impressive list of venues and performances, ( House of Blues, Broadway at The Beach, South Port 4th of July fest, Clayton NC 4th of July fest, Opening spot for Nashville Recording Artist / Actor ( TBS series Leverage ) Christian Kane ) EastBound has definitely made its mark in the region.

And don’t forget to stay for our fantastic final double, end-of-the-season Fireworks extravaganza at 9:00 pm (weather permitting).  Come join your family and friends at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk for a night of FREE fun, music and fireworks.

Don’t forget about Cash Bingo this Wednesday  at the Gazebo Stage from 7:00 – 9:00, followed by Family Night at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk from 6:30 – 8:30 on Thursday evening. Let’s not forget, the very popular Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market held every Saturday from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Carolina Beach Lake.

To close out the week, this Sunday, September 2nd, the movie at the Carolina Beach Lake with the exciting Dwayne Johnson action adventure Journey 2 – The Mysterious Island with The Rock, Vanessa Hudgens and Michael Caine.    The showing will be at 8:45 pm at the Carolina Beach Lake at the corner of South Lake Park Boulevard and Atlanta Avenue.

In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit Journey to the Center of the Earth, the new family adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It's a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean's new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.

All movies are weather-dependent, so be sure to call ahead (910-458-8434), if the weather seems threatening to make sure the show will go on.
