November Events and Things To Do

It is so hard to believe that November 2017 is right around the corner. How did that happen? Where did the year go? And how can it almost be the holiday season again? If you haven't been to visit us here in Emerald Isle, North Carolina this year—you better get to it before the rest of the year passes you by. The good news is that it's always the right time for a beautiful beach vacation on North Carolina's Crystal Coast. You might want to consider planning a holiday celebration at the beach this year. The possibilities are endless, but rest assured that the beach makes everything better. While you contemplate all of your wonderful options for hosting a holiday celebration at the beach right in your Emerald Isle vacation rental, here are the rest of the November events you need to know about this month. Mark your calendars and join us at these fun and festive Emerald Isle events and activities. Hope to see you there.

Veterans Day Parade
November 11, 2017

Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 each year and marks the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended World War I hostilities between the Allied Forces and Germany in 1918. As you know, Veterans Day honors and thanks all who have served this country. So how can you best celebrate the day and honor our veterans while vacationing on the Crystal Coast? We're glad you asked. Make the short drive over to Morehead City for the annual Veterans Day Parade on Saturday November 11, 2017 from 11a.m. to 1p.m. on Arendell Street in downtown. Come early to find your spot and show your support and appreciation for those who've sacrificed their time to serve and protect our country. Each year the Morehead City Veterans Parade brings together over 2,000 people, including veterans, current military members, marching bands, classic cars, Boy and Girl Scouts and more. Our Carteret County Veterans always appreciate the love and show of support.

Come on over to the Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation gymnasium at 7p.m. for the Friday Free Flicks series. Snack on popcorn and a drink for just a buck as you sit back and enjoy the show. Don't forget to bring your chair or blanket with you. This month's Friday Free Flick feature movie is Disney's beloved Beauty and the Beast. This live action version of the classic story features young Belle as she tries to escape her ordinary existence, among other things. If you haven't seen this recent remake of the animated version, now is the time. Bring your family, bring your friends. (IMG Source: Town of Emerald Isle)

Emerald Isle Christmas Parade & Holiday Tree Lighting

The 14th Annual Emerald Isle Christmas Parade is a local holiday tradition. Join in the seasonal celebrations that include the parade and the holiday tree lighting. Sponsored by the Emerald Isle Business Association and the Town of Emerald Isle, the holiday festivities start with the parade on Saturday, November 25 beginning at 3p.m. on Emerald Drive. Just a reminder that there is only one Santa Claus in the parade, and he will be riding in a float at the end. All other Santas will be sent back to the North Pole! The party continues after the parade, so meet up at Merchant's Park for the official Emerald Isle Christmas Tree Lighting. Enjoy free refreshments and a holiday caroling sing-a-long as Santa Claus visits with the children.
