Summer Fun in Landfall

Summertime in southeastern North Carolina is an exciting season packed with barbecues, concerts and festivals while the warm weather lasts and the kids are out of school!

But if you’re new to the area, you might miss out on some of the best that our towns have to offer. Once you get settled into this private, close-knit community, get to know your neighbors in the Landfall area this summer.

Airlie Summer Concert Series

On the first and third Friday of every month in the summer, enjoy a show in the iconic Airlie Gardens. Home to 67 acres of lush greenery, a freshwater lake, and well-kept formal gardens, the grounds are the perfect setting for families to explore the gardens’ meandering pathways before settling down to take in an outdoor concert. Genres range from reggae to rock, to big band, to bluegrass, so there’s a little something for everyone! Concerts start at 6:00 p.m. and generally wrap up at 8:00 p.m. Don’t miss your chance to soak in the natural beauty of the Wilmington area!

WB Surf Camp

Now that you’ve relocated to our coastal town, it’s time you acquainted yourself with our ocean! There’s no better way to get into the flow of life near the beach than to enroll in WB Surf Camp. Under the guidance of trained instructors, you and the kids can catch waves and learn all about ocean safety, all while building confidence through trying a new sport. There are even a few surf retreats offered for students in certain age groups. Check out the schedule to see if sessions are still open, and get on that board like a local!

Landfall Fireworks and 4th of July Parade  

Each year, the Landfall community treats its residents to some stellar fireworks and a parade in honor of Independence Day! The evening of July 3 finds the community watching for the fireworks display around 9:00 p.m., when it’s dark enough to view the fantastic colors in full. The annual parade begins the next morning around 10:00 a.m. with a vehicle lineup of Landfall’s cars decorated to show the local spirit. Residents interested in joining the parade should meet at Sun Runner Place and follow the caravan past the Arboretum, Pembroke Jones, and Drysdale Drive to meet up with the kids’ parade. The day wraps up with a community cookout!

There is so much to see and do both in and out of your new neighborhood, especially in the summertime here in southeastern North Carolina!
