This 2-day event, October 27th & 28th, 2019, kicks off with a parade down the Holden Beach Causeway. This is the only day of the year that you can walk across the Holden Beach bridge and each year several hundred enjoy this time to take pictures and view our beautiful waterway.
Arts and Crafts vendors are open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday. You’ll want to plan to be onsite for a couple of meals and a snack or two from the Festivals food vendors.
For the competitive people, there is a horseshoe tournament and a sandcastle building contest. Children enjoy face painting, huge kites flying overhead and the children’s fun areas. There is live musical entertainment both days at Holden Beach’s Pavilion.
Admission and parking for this event are free.
