Are you and your family looking to head to the beach this fall to experience what the weather is like? Many families love to visit the North Carolina Southern Coast during the fall months because the weather is still warm enough to enjoy the sand. Staying in one of our Holden Beach vacation rentals will keep you close to the beach and to where some of the fun fall festivals are happening. Let’s look below at where your family can enjoy some fun at some of the festivals happening around on the North Carolina Southern Coast.

The town of Sunset Beach is hosting a community block party where your family can enjoy lots of food, fun and arts & crafts. This is the 13th year that the festival has been going on and many locals love heading to it for family quality time. From getting to listen to some amazing music all day to trying new food from many local restaurants, there’s always something for everyone.

This happens to be the 39th year that they have been hosting it and we can tell you that you won’t want to miss out on any of the fun. On October 19th and 20th your family can get to experience this amazing festival that will have lots of fun things for everyone in the family.
