When you decide to spend your Thanksgiving at the ocean you’re making a decision that may affect every future Thanksgiving holiday. It’s hard to compare a stay-at-home holiday with a holiday spent along the coast, especially when you stay with us at Ocean Isle Inn. We’ll make your stay cozy and comfortable. We promise.
If you’re visiting, the following are some of the local events taking place on behalf of the holidays. These are favorite annual events of residents and visitors alike. The best part of all is that these are right here in Ocean Isle Beach so you won’t have far to travel to enjoy them.
Ocean Isle Beach Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony
These annual events will be held on Saturday, Nov. 29 starting at 2 p.m. with the parade. The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is on the mainland side of the Causeway and begins at 5 p.m. Join us to gather and sing Christmas carols followed by hot cocoa, coffee and other goodies at the Fire Station where Santa will be making an appearance!
10th Annual Ocean Isle Beach Flotilla
The flotilla takes place beginning at dusk beginning in front of Inlet View Bar and Grill. It proceeds down the canal and ends at Sharky’s Restaurant. Pick a viewing spot between those two spots and it will be a great place to watch. Judging will be held at Sharky’s with a party with live music by the Bailout Band following. There’s also an auction with many exciting prizes including Jimmy Buffet concert tickets. All proceeds benefit the Brunswick Family Assistance Program.
