You’re Invited

Happy Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving season is a great time to get away. You’re invited to the Hangin’ with Santa event, where there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy. Enjoy cocoa and cookies along with a light show with kites on Jockey’s Ridge, just 4 miles from Surf Side Hotel. Next, support local businesses and take advantage of all the amazing holiday sales.

Pictures taken with Santa at Kitty Hawk Kites at Jockey’s Ridge Crossing in Nags Head happens Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30. Then, have some fun with Santa’s elves and try out classic toys straight from the workshop on the second floor of Kitty Hawk Kites! On Saturday, there’s plenty of holiday treats to enjoy, with the proceeds benefitting the Friends of Jockey’s Ridge.

The light display on Saturday, November 30 is like no other. Kites with Lights, at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, will feature large 19-to-30 foot kites decked out in the spirit of the holiday season! Enjoy the lighting of the Jockey’s Ridge State Park Solar Christmas tree out on the dunes directly across from Jockey’s Ridge Crossing.
