July 2016

July is an exciting month here on the island. It is the heart of the tourist season and the ocean is getting warmer each day. The weather is great in July for outdoor activities.  Our annual fireworks celebration will be held on July 4th beginning at 9 pm at the Bogue Inlet Pier. What a wonderful way to end your 4th of July celebrations with our spectacular fireworks display. This year’s event promises to be great as usual.  Please join me at 9 pm for our fireworks display.

I am pleased to announce The Return of the Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival on Saturday, August 27 from 11 am – 5:30 pm on the beach at the Western Ocean Regional Access!! (next to the Islander). The Town of Emerald Isle is excited to announce the return of the Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival!  It’s been 17 years since the last Beach Music Festival was held in Emerald Isle and the NEW 2016 event promises to match the great times of the festivals of the 1980s and the 1990s.

We’ve got a great lineup of top performers planned, including:

     .     Sammy O’ Banion

     .     Spare Change

     .     Hip Pocket

     .     Fantastic Shakers

     .     Too Much Sylvia

     .     The Tams

     .     Jim Quick & Coastline

Mark your calendars now and make plans to be back in Emerald Isle for the return of the Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival on Saturday, August 27. More details will be announced soon and posted at www.emeraldisle-nc.org.

The next Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the EMS will be held on Saturday, July 2, from 7am-11am.  Please join the Emerald Isle EMS for a wonderful breakfast of hot pancakes, sausage, juice, and coffee. The cost is only $5.00 per person and all proceeds go to our EMS. What a great way to have wonderful breakfast with your neighbors and friends and support our outstanding EMS. SEE YOU FOR BREAKFAST! Please tell others about this breakfast. See you on July 2 at the EMS Station, 7604 Emerald Drive (next to the Fire Department).

As we celebrate July 4 and enjoy the fireworks with family and friends, let us never forget the brave souls that fought and served for the pride and peace of our Nation. Let us never forget the sacrifices others have made and continue to make each day for our freedom.

Enjoy July on our wonderful island.  May God bless you, our Nation, and our beloved Emerald Isle.
