The aptly-named Pleasure Island is the place to be in the Cape Fear region to ring in the new year, thanks to a hopping beach boardwalk, music and dancing, plenty of refreshments, and a beautiful backdrop next to the Atlantic Ocean.

The family-friendly night out will feature a DJ and dancing, with refreshments of all varieties and New Year-themed party favors available for purchase. The night ends with a giant beach ball drop, as well as an epic fireworks display over the open ocean waters. With lots of fun to go around and a big dose of community spirit, the Island of Lights New Year's Eve Celebration is a holiday celebration that will appeal to Carolina Beach locals and visitors alike.
