Pleasure Island has another great 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 Thursday nights’ FREE concert on August 16th from 6:30 until 9:30 featuring the Bibis Ellison Band.
Bibis Ellison is the lead singer of the Bibis Ellison band, who reinvents everything from The Police to Florence and the Machine. She also plays as part of a piano/vocal duo. She performs original music of her own as well and has been a guest artist with bands like Glow In The Dark Scars, Mount Moriah, Action Inc, Bellafea and He Is Legend. She keeps busy.
And don’t forget to stay for our fantastic Fireworks show 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.
The following night, Friday, we will be presenting our fifth (and re-scheduled) FREE Summer Concert Series at the Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area with Kure Beach’s local favorite – South of K. South of K is an acoustic band that many of you will recognize as a neighbor, family member, or even a long time friend! Each member resides or has close ties to Kure Beach, NC. Dennis Cooper, Aaron and Jamie King, and Joey Canady each have a long history of performing in varying music genres, but their love for their brand of bluegrass and their strong friendship has brought them together to form South of K. What you will experience with this band is more than merely music; it's "friendship manifested in music!"
Don’t forget about Family Night every Tuesday at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk from 6:30-8:30, followed by Cash BINGO at the Gazebo Stage from 7:00-9:00 on Wednesday evenings. 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, August 19th, the movie at the Carolina Beach Lake will be the animated sequel, Happy Feet Two with voices by Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon. The showing will be at 8:45 pm at the Carolina Beach Lake at the corner of South Lake Park Boulevard and Atlanta Avenue.
Happy Feet Two returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica where, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven-a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right.
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.
These films are free and open to the public. Popcorn, candy, soft drinks, cotton candy and other popular concessions are available at reasonable prices. This is a true summer time treat for adults and kids alike.
