Summer Fun: Activities for the Whole Family

“School’s Out For Summer!” in my best Alice Cooper voice.  No, but really for some it is, and for others it’s coming soon!  The break gives us a chance to catch back up with family and enjoy our beautiful NC weather.  Here’s a quick guide to some happenings in the area that all ages will enjoy.

  • “Alive After Five” Summer Concert Series-Clinton, NC

These FREE concerts will play on the third Thursday of each month, May-October.  Bring your lawn chair and your dancing shoes for a great time in downtown.  Not a Sampson County native? Check your local Chamber of Commerce for a similar event this summer.

  • Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center-Surf City, NC

Check out some of NC’s coastal inhabitants, learn how they are rehabilitated and even take part in a turtle release.  General Admission is only $5 to get up close and personal with these beautiful sea creatures. Check the website for hours of operation and turtle release dates.

  • Minor League Baseball-Fayetteville, Wilmington & Kinston, NC

Take me out to the ballgame...See some future MLB stars right here at home!  Baseball is an American past time for all ages. We now have 3 local teams to watch.

  • Local Fourth of July Celebrations

Fireworks will be popping everywhere come July 4!  Join a celebration and wish America a Happy Birthday!  Locally you will find events in Clinton, Newton Grove, Surf City and Holly Ridge.

  • NC Blueberry Festival-Burgaw, NC

Turn your June blue with a visit to this “sweet” festival in downtown Burgaw.  Vendors, games, music and of course blueberries will make for fun filled day for everyone.

This is just a sample of what our area offers during the summer months.  I hope that you and your gang can take in some of our local flair while making memories to last a lifetime!
