Celebrating Sunset . . . at Sunset! Advantages of a South-Facing Beach

Sunset Beach, NC, enjoys an advantage that no other part of coastal carolina has:  If you stay on its wide sandy expanses until the end of day, you can watch the sun set over the ocean! Because of its Northeast-Southwest orientation, the sands of Sunset provide the best seat in the house from which to admire the brilliant beauties of the sun sinking into the waves. The privileges of such a position are not lost on the residents of Sunset Beach, who celebrate every year with an annual festival called Sunset at Sunset.
The 7th annual Sunset at Sunset celebration in Sunset Beach, NC will be held on October 5, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  It will be located right by the Ingram Planetarium, and will include several athletic events (including an early-morning 5K run across the Mannon C. Gore Bridge), a photo competition, lots of live music and dancing, arts and crafts, entertainment for the kids, and - of course - great food.  There is no charge for admission.  You can visit the Festival's official site online and find out how to enter the various competitions and more about the vendors and sponsors.
