Kids will love the annual Fireworks by the Sea and Boardwalk Blasts held at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk as this weekly event entertains all summer long. See free outdoor family movies by the lake, just like being at the drive-in only without a car. Visit the Carolina Beach State Park with its Junior Ranger program geared towards kids’ ages 6 to 12 who will not only have fun, but also gain an appreciation of North Carolina's cultural and natural heritage. Colorful kites filling they sky will bring out the kid in everyone at the Cape Fear Kite Festival.
Nearby on the island, find summer camps at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and kids’ programs at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site and Museum.
There are plenty of family friendly events to please everyone in this coastal community.
