All events are family friendly and all are free with exception of the fashion show and tour of homes fundraisers.
Starting with the lighting of the lake celebration the day after Thanksgiving and finishing with a New Year's celebration, the towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach come alive during the Holiday Season.
The Island of Lights volunteers organize all of the events. For more information check the events page.

2020 Events may be cancelled but we can still spread the Christmas cheer! This year along with the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce we will be coordinating a Holiday Decorating Contest for both businesses and homes. Please click below for more information and the corresponding application.
It is with regret that due to Covid-19, and not being able to safely social distance during events, Island of Lights has decided to cancel all 2020 events.
