Enjoy a day on the North Carolina coast at Holden Beach. We’ll be attending the North Carolina Festival-By-The-Sea. This annual event attracts thousands of visitors who come to browse the many Festival-By-The-Sea exhibits featuring coastal arts and crafts, and a variety of coastal cuisine. The event features dozens of local and regional vendors. Candles, jewelry, paintings, boat dealers, and fishing tackle shops are just a few of the types of vendors you'll find. Food options range from seafood to burgers, and there is sure to be something to feed everyone's appetite. Don't forget to have a few sweet festival treats as well. This is also the only day of the year that you can walk across the Holden Beach bridge. With tons of games, vendors, contests, and live music, this year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever. Arriving back approximately 9:00 PM.
