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 exhibits featuring coastal arts and crafts, and a variety of coastal cuisine. There are more than 100 local and regional vendors, plus live music. Candles, jewelry, art, sculpture - everything you can think of! 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. If you're done with the festival, take a walk on the beach, or have a nice meal at one of the three restaurants in the area. Arriving back approximately 9:00 PM.
