One of the biggest events in the Brunswick Islands is coming up later this month. The Days at the Docks Festival will be held on Jordan Blvd., under the Holden Beach Bridge on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014.
Come help the North Carolina locals and visitors officially kick off the start of the vacation season! This festival has plenty of arts and crafts vendors to browse through and lots of tasty food to try. If you enjoy dancing you’ll like knowing there will be live music and other entertainment. Bands performing will be Fat Jack Band, Legree Graham Band, and The Fabulous Daddy O’s. There will also be a horseshoe tournament and the very popular “Bopple Race.”
There’s a children’s area that will be set up for kids on both days that include a Home Depot workshop, The Almost Amazing A with his Awesome Balloons, Miss Jenn’s Face Painting, Harvest Fellowship and an assortment of new games along with prizes, too!
