Lots of Events to Enjoy on Pleasure Island this 4th of July

Pleasure Island has another great week of free activities for your vacationing and leisure-time fulfillment. There is always something for everyone on our little slice of paradise. Please plan on joining us for Thursday nights’ free double concert on July 3rd from 6:30 - 9:30 featuring Massive Grass and Southern Trouble. It’s not unusual to hear about a band that began in one genre and surged into another, but it’s always interesting to hear fragments of the old sound play out in the new music. Members of local bluegrass outfit Massive Grass were involved in rock or metal bands prior, and though it’s not overt on the surface, aesthetics of both of those styles show up. Our group is formed of five guys who came together in March of 2012, purely by chance.  Two guitar players and a singer who had already met and were looking for a bass player and a drummer. After taking a small break from music, a bass player and a drummer were looking to reform their band and that's when they all met and became, "Southern Trouble".  And don’t forget to stay for our fantastic Quadruple Independence Fireworks show at 9:00 pm (weather permitting).  Come join your family and friends at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk for a night of free fun, music and fireworks. In Carolina Beach, don’t forget about Family Night every Tuesday at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk from 6:30-8:30, followed by Cash BINGO at the Gazebo Stage from 7:00-9:00 on Wednesday evenings. Let’s not forget, the very popular Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market held every Saturday from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Carolina Beach Lake.
At Kure Beach’s new Oceanfront Park, they have a becvy of activity starting with Turtle Talks every Monday from 7:00-8:00 pm, followed by Tuesday’s Open Air Market from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. On Wednesday, bring the young ones to Story Time By The Sea from 10:00-11:30 am.
To close out the week, this Sunday, July 6th, Boogie in the Park present Mark Roberts Band at the Ocean Front Park from 5:00-8:00 pm.
Everyone's favorite - The Mark Robert’s Band is playing our fourth of six FREE Concerts in this series.  Now a little bit about Mark Robert’s . It would seem that The Mark Roberts Band has been around forever, however, that is not so. Just in the last three years has MRB been around, and in that short time frame, they have already made a tremendous impact in the Music Industry, especially in and around The Southeast. Their unique sound is drawing rave reviews from the Radio Jocks, along with maintaining a continous place on the Cash Box Top 40 Charts, with songs like, "Lover Lover", "New Orleans Ladies", and "Love Me as Hard as You Hurt Me". They are a band that is soon to go National.
And finally, the movie at the Carolina Beach Lake will be the hilarious Nut Job with voices by Katherine Heigl amd Will Arnett.   The showing will be at 8:45 pm at the Carolina Beach Lake at the corner of South Lake Park Boulevard and Atlanta Avenue.
This is an action-packed comedy in fictional Oakton that follows the travails of Surly, a mischievous squirrel, and his rat friend Buddy, who plan a nut store heist of outrageous proportions and unwittingly find themselves embroiled in a much more complicated and hilarious adventure. All movies are weather-dependent, so be sure to call ahead (910-458-8434), if the weather seems threatening to make sure the show will go on. These films are 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.Please contact the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce if you have questions and don't forget to check out our exciting Pleasure Island Calendar of Events.
