Music, Movies, Fireworks and Family All This Week on the Island

By the end of this week New Hanover County Schools will be out for Summer and Pleasure Island is FULL of plenty events to keep your family busy! Start your Sunday off with the Chamber’s “Free Movie at the Lake Series.”  This Sunday will be the third of fifteen FREE Movies at the Lake with the highly acclaimed animated feature film Cars 2 by Academy Award Winning Studio PIXAR who brought us the Toy Story Series as well as the original Cars. Movies start at 8:45 at the Carolina Beach Lake, these films is free and open to the public.  Popcorn, candy, soft drinks, cotton candy and other popular concessions are available at reasonable prices.  This is a true summer time treat for adults and kids alike. For a complete schedule check out page 2B.
Tuesdays bring the family out for the Boardwalk Makeover Group’s “Family Night”, enjoy fun activities for kids, teens and adults that include karoke, bouncy toys, line dancing, face painting, and much more! Family Night runs each Tuesday from 6:30pm until 8:30pm until August 28th at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.
Wednesdays come out for an old fashioned game of BINGO! Presented by the Boardwalk Makeover Group Cash Bingo is held every Wednesday Night from 7:00 until 9:00pm at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk Gazebo. This event is for ages 12 and up and is $10 a pack for regular Bingo.
Music and Fireworks will be held each Thursday until August 31st with the exception of July 3rd where the Chamber will hold its Biggest Show for Independence Day. This Thursday enjoy the sounds of Machine Gun, the band was formed in May of 2004, but these players have performed for quite a few years. Based out of Wilmington, NC, this line up is a perfect match. Tommy Brothers on guitar, Tony Mallard on percussion Caryn Dunayer on Keys & guitar, and John White on bass. With an impressive tight rhythm section mixed with tremendous guitar virtuosity and vocals, Machine Gun takes it to the next level. A talent level in which most bands cant reach. Gazebo entertainment will begin at 6:30 pm with Fireworks at 9:00pm.
This Friday marks the first Free Summer Concert Series of the Season with “Eastbond” at Fort Fisher Military Recreation Area in Kure Beach. Bring blankets and chairs for the whole family and prepare to boogie the night away. Food IS allowed so pack your picnic and enjoy dinner to the grooves of live music - for free!
