With the official kick-off to the summer season approaching quickly, the Town of Holden Beach is getting ready to welcome this summer’s visitors. We know that most vacationers come to town to spend a week (Or more, if their luck!) lounging on the beach, playing in the water, and making the most of the laid back coastal life, but that doesn’t mean they want to lay around all day every day.
As a kick off the 2015 season, Holden Beach is reviving its free summer concert series. The first concert, planned for Memorial Day, May 24th, will feature The Imitations, a Wilmington-based group that plays mostly beach music with a great selection of rock & roll, Motown, and other classics mixed in. These crowd pleasers are looking forward to opening up the summer season with a great party.
All shows in the Holden Beach Concert Series are free of charge and will be held at the Holden Beach Pavilion, giving concertgoers a great view of the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway. Far from a one-time event, there are shows scheduled every Sunday night at 6:30 PM from May 31st through the end of the season on Labor Day weekend. The final show is scheduled for September 6th.
The Holden Beach Concert Series has planned a little something for everyone this year. Attendees can look forward to hearing some of the greatest hits from classic rock, country, top 40, soul, funk, and of course plenty of beach music that was made for dancing. With a beautiful waterfront venue and a friendly crowd, these shows guarantee a great time.
If you’re not ready to call it quits after the show, there are plenty of places within walking distance to grab a bite to eat, a quick night cap, or both.
Mermaid’s Island Grill- Well know from some of the best cocktails on the island, this Bar & Grill also makes a pretty mean burger.
Captain Pete’s Seafood- Located right on the Intracoastal Waterway, Captain Pete’s is the place to be if you love seafood. A great view complements a tasty meal as the perfect way to finish the night off right.
Castaways Raw Bar & Grill- If you’re looking for a view of the ocean to go along with your dinner, Castaways upper deck is a great choice. Crisp ocean breezes will cool you off on even the hottest days. Oh, and they also happen to have some great food and drinks to go along with their excellent location.
