How time flies! The 2011 summer season has come to a close and that means you have the Holden Beach NC Festival by the Sea to look foreword to! This year brings the same great events, only 2011 times more fun.
The Holden Beach Merchants Association invites you to enjoy a weekend of FOOD, FESTIVITIES AND FUN. The weekend kicks off with the yearly parade down the Holden Beach Causeway. You’ll get to enjoy the sights of colorful parade floats with the entire Holden Beach community out and about socializing and having a great time. Local high school bands will be marching and candy will fly through the air for kids to hoard. You won’t want to miss it.
After the parade join fellow parade goers for a stroll over the Holden Beach bridge with a view that will take your breath away… literally… you might not want to look straight down. Art, craft, and food vendors await you on the island, so bring your wallet and an empty stomach. There will sand sculpture competitions along with face painting for the kids.
