PLEASURE ISLAND - COVID-19 has changed our lives for the indefinite future. Yet, for the immediate future many long standing summer events in Carolina Beach have been postponed.

July 4th is right around the corner on the calendar, but in Carolina Beach there will be no July 3rd Independence Day fireworks display or entertainment at the Boardwalk.

According to Greg Reynolds with the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce, "Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the North Carolina State of Emergency limits on crowd size, the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach have to cancel all May and June events previously scheduled."

Reynolds explained, "This includes the first six fireworks and movies at the lake as well as the first two free summer concerts at Fort Fisher. These will not be rescheduled. The 35th Annual Carolina Beach Music Festival scheduled for June 6th has been postponed until a later date yet to be determined."

He explained, "It is our hope that we can have our iconic, signature event later this year. Stay tuned, wash your hands, social distance and wear a face covering when in public. Hope to see you soon!".
