Festival by the Sea 2014
October 25, 2014 - October 26, 2014
The Great Holden Beach Merchants Association hosts the very popular “NC Festival by the Sea” on the last full weekend in October. This two-day event is kicked off with a parade down the Holden Beach causeway. This is the only day of the year that you can walk across the bridge. Each year several hundred visitors enjoy this time to enjoy the birds-eye view.
Arts and craft vendors are open from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday. You’ll want to plan to be on-site for at least a couple meals and a snack or two from the Festival food vendors.
For the competitive type, there is often horseshoe tournament and sandcastle building contests. Children enjoy face painting, huge kites flying overheard and other children’s amusements. There is live music both days.
