Join us for the Day at the Dock Festival

Spring is here and with the warmer weather comes the annual Day at the Docks festival. Join us this Saturday April 26th & Sunday April 27th under the Holden Beach Bridge for two days of live music, street vendors and family fun galore. Free to the public, this year’s festival adds more local vendors and events for attendants. New for 2014 are the King Mackerel and Flounder Fishing Tournaments, both feature cash prizes for the best catch. Also making their debuts this year are the Horse Shoe and Cornhole Tournaments. This weekend’s festival also offers plenty of excitement for the kids, featuring inflatable slides and bouncy houses as well as face painting and a Home Depot workshop. One event that is always popular with the kids is the Bobble race. The race is scheduled to take place around 3 p.m. Sunday; participants can buy a Bopple up until race time from any of the street vendors. A chance on a Bopple costs $1 each, or you can buy six chances for $5. At the designated race time, the Bopples will be dropped off of the Holden Beach Bridge into the Intracoastal Waterway. The first Bopple to cross the finish line wins a fabulous prize. This year’s musical guest includes the Fat Jack Band, Legree Graham Band, the Parkton UNC Praise Band, and Pantastic Steel. Of course there will be plenty of dancing lead by The Fabulous Daddy O’s who will be performing at the Holden Beach Pavilion. Here is a detailed list of event times.
