Music lovers young and old could find more than fifteen bands on two stages at this year’s event. Although the crowd got drenched for a brief period Saturday afternoon, most of the acts went on as scheduled. Event organizers were pleased with this year’s turnout.

“We’re happy to have everybody here. Its actually one of the most gorgeous days you can find on Pleasure Island,” said Chamber of Commerce Chairman Bruce Holsten. “But more importantly, we’ve got a great crowd, an unbelievable lineup, the best food in southeast North Carolina, and some of the best music over the next two days.”

Organizers said the festival has grown by leaps and bounds over the last sixteen years and remains Pleasure Island’s biggest event.
