Carolina Beach, NC – The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce will be holding the 17th Annual Pleasure Island Chowder Cook-Off on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the Carolina Beach Lake.   
The Chowder Cook Off is all about delicious food, good music, and family fun, so bring the kids along to this family-oriented event. Chefs from southeast North Carolina’s finest restaurants will prepare the region’s best seafood chowder recipes.   Folks can sample a taste of Cape Fear during this friendly chowder competition held at Carolina Beach Lake Park in Carolina Beach. Children can enjoy the park’s playground and a Kidz Zone with face-painting, a giant inflatable slide and more. And for an additional fee, there will be paddleboat rides for the entire family.  The gates open at 11:30am and the Band will conclude at 5:00 pm. During the Chowder Cook-Off, enjoy live music and chowder-tasting (and voting) between 11:30am and 4:00pm, but make sure to arrive early while the chowder is abundant.  Your job is to bring the family and your discerning palate to sample and vote on your favorite chowder.  This daylong event includes live music, fun for the kids and of course, great food.  So come to the beach for the weekend and spend the day with us at this great party.  Gates open at 11:30 and admission is only $5.00 for adults, children 12 and under are FREE.  For more information please call the Chamber at 910-458-8434 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
