Retirement Celebration: Please join us for a retirement celebration in honor of Sergeant Mike Hamilton on Tuesday, November 20th at 6:00 p.m. in the Town Hall Public Assembly.

Save the Date: The Town of Holden Beach will celebrate our 50th Anniversary on Thursday, February 14, 2019. The Parks & Recreation Advisory Board is preparing a list of events that will span from Thursday, February 14th - Saturday, February 16th. Event timelines will be released soon. If you have old photos of Holden Beach that you would like to share please send them to Christy at christy.ferguson@hbtownhall.com.

Dredging Project: (October 18) Construction at the Scotch Bonnet dredge spoil area began this week in preparation for this winter’s canal dredging project.  We ask that canal property owners begin to move their boats and docks if possible in preparation for the dredge event.  The tentative schedule will begin with Holden Beach Harbor mid-November, followed by Heritage Harbor mid-January, and Harbor Acres mid-February.  Note:  This schedule may be affected by inclement weather.

Dog Park Closed: The Dog Park is closed due to the Canal Dredging Project. We anticipate it  will be closed until at least Memorial Day.

Tree Lighting: The Town will hold its annual Tree Lighting on Thursday, November 29th. The event will begin with entertainment at 5:30 p.m., followed by the lighting at 6:00 p.m. There will be games, refreshments and a visit by a special guest. Prior to the event there will be a Chili Cook-off, to be judged at noon at Town Hall. Winners will be announced at the Tree Lighting. If you are interested in the Chili Cook-off, please call (910) 842-6488 to pre-register by November 26th.

Splash Pad Closed: The splash pad located at Bridgeview Park is closed for the season. It will reopen next Memorial Day.

Sea Turtles Dig in the Dark: Nesting turtles are very frightened by lights and will not lay their eggs on a lighted beach. Please help the Turtle Patrol protect and preserve our turtles by turning off beachfront lighting and using red covers on flashlights used on the beach from May 1st until October 30th. If you see a turtle on the beach, please call the HB Turtle Patrol at (910) 754-0766. After you call, please stay at least 50 feet away and keep all lights off the turtle. Before they begin to lay sea turtles are very sensitive to lights and noise and will abort the nesting if frightened.
