Join Us for a Howling Good Time Thanksgiving Weekend

Celebrating nature’s wonders is just part of life on Bald Head Island.

So in January of 2011, when Claude and Melissa Pope, proprietors of The Maritime Market, started a monthly gathering to salute the setting of the sun and the rise of the full moon, it was an instant hit.

Naturally, the start time and size of the crowd vary depending on the season, but there are always plenty of enthusiastic revelers to let out a collective howl as the full moon rises out of the Atlantic Ocean. Fortuitously, November’s full moon falls of the day after Thanksgiving, guaranteeing a large, enthusiastic group.

Island Hardware and Atlantic Realty Professional are the generous cosponsors of this month’s event, and the Maritime Market’s Chef Marc will provide a huge pot of his famous soup. All are welcome and asked to BYOB, as well as an appetizer to share. Peter McArthur will provide the musical accompaniment, playing ancient Celtic tunes on the bagpipe as the moon breaks the horizon.

Please join us on Friday, November 23, 2018 from 4:30-6:30 pm at East Beach, Access 39. Sunset: 5:04 pm. Moonrise: 5:49 pm.

What better way to continue the holiday of eating, fellowship and gratitude than to gather on East Beach at sunset? We hope to see you there!
