CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — In Carolina Beach, the Island of Lights Committee is preparing for one their biggest nights of the year this New Year’s Eve.
Starting at 9 p.m. at the gazebo between the Boardwalk and the Marriott is a street dance with a band and DJ. You can dance your way through midnight when the fire department will drop the lighted beach ball followed by a 15-minute fireworks show.
With close to 2,000 people expected to attend the New Year’s Eve party, we asked Island of Lights Committee President Frances Massey for tips to be part of the crowd.
“Come early if you can,” she said. “Parking in the city parking lots at this time of the year is free, so park there. Come out and have a good time, because it’s for people of all ages.”
The Island of Lights Committee will be selling hot chocolate, hats and noise makers.
Many of the Carolina Beach bar and restaurants are also having new year’s eve specials.
Another tip if you plan on coming out tonight, bring a jacket because with the breeze it is chilly on Pleasure Island.
