Carolina Beach Events Bring One-of-a-Kind Good Family Times

Kids will love the annual Fireworks by the Sea and Boardwalk Blasts held at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk as this weekly event entertains all summer long. See free outdoor family movies by the lake, just like being at the drive-in only without a car. Visit the Carolina Beach State Park with its Junior Ranger program geared towards kids ages 6 to 12 who will not only have fun, but also gain an appreciation of North Carolina's cultural and natural heritage. Colorful kites filling the sky will bring out the kid in everyone at the Cape Fear Kite Festival.
