Memorial Day Summer KickOff

Memorial Day Summer Kick-Off

Friday, May 24, 2013

Bald Head Island is the best place on the globe to officially kick off summer, with parties, kids’ activities and a host of island-wide events.

Adventure enthusiasts can get their thrill on with standup paddleboarding (SUP) excursions, kayak trips, surf lessons, hikes and island nature tours. Kids interested in nature will love crabbing and cast netting lessons, touch tank time and reptile exploration with the Bald Head Island Conservancy. Island-wide open houses, Turtle Trot 5k and art exhibit at All About Art round out the offerings.

If you're looking for a party, the Memorial Weekend Kickoff Party at the Shoals Club on Saturday night is fun for the whole family. And new this year, Sunday's Sunset Celebration sponsored by RiverLanding1524 features jugglers, a puppet show, music, and a beach party with a drum circle, bonfire and s'mores.
