The fall kicks off in a big way with the 19th Annual Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival on October 13-14. This family-friendly event will showcase a weekend of non-stop musical talent on two stages, featuring nationally recognized artists and award-winning, locally prepared seafood. Gregg Allman, famed Southern rocker and lead singer of The Allman Brothers Band, will headline the festival. Tickets are available now for purchase online.
The waters surrounding Kure Beach are home to some of the best offshore and inshore fishing in North Carolina. For those anglers looking for some competition, the annual Pleasure Island Surf Fishing Challenge will take place from October 19-21 in Kure Beach and nearby Carolina Beach. The tournament is the area’s premiere land-based fishing event that offers fun for the whole family and great prizes for winners. Fishermen are encouraged to register for the tournament early as admission fees increase closer to the event.
