The Crystal Coast Countdown to the New Year Begins This Week


We hope you're fully immersed in the holidays, enjoying time with family and friends, and taking time to indulge in some rest and relaxation this week. As 2013 comes to a close, we wanted to thank you for choosing Sun-Surf Realty in Emerald Isle as your vacation rental experts here on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. We appreciate you selecting us as your vacation partners and look forward to serving you in 2014.

Crystal Coast New Year CountdownThe New Year's festivities start early here on the coast beginning this Friday, December 27 and continuing right up to January 1. The Crystal Coast Countdown 2014 is a 6-day extravaganza of New Year's celebrations throughout the county. It spans multiple venues kicking off right here in Emerald Isle and continuing on through Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, Morehead City, Beaufort, and Newport.

Enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities, which include some of our best local talent. You'll find musicians, storytellers, dancers, tours, artists and more. New Year's Eve counts down the clock to midnight with a Crab Pot Drop, live music and a fireworks display. New Year's Day is off to a chilly start with the annual (and very popular) Penguin Plunge in the brisk, yet refreshing, Atlantic waters. Join us if you dare! Other activities occurring on that day include a sand-sculpting competition and guided park tours.

There are some great prizes, too. The festivities continue from there and the days are jam-packed with a little something for everyone of every age and interest. Be sure to check out the full listing of events at the Crystal Coast Countdown 2014 activity schedule page.
