Make the most out of Monday evenings and celebrate your inner mermaid with this unique summertime festival that features lots of ways to have a ball. The Sunset Festival Mermaid Mondays event is held weekly in the summer months on the edge of Jockey’s Ridge Crossing, and features ample opportunities to shop, dine, and enjoy one of the best natural outdoor shows on the Outer Banks.
The nightly Sunset Festival takes place from Sunday through Friday at Jockey’s Ridge, and features a spectacular front row seat to one of the best sunset-watching vantage points along the North Carolina coastline. After taking in the magical outdoor display, attendees can wander over to the Kitty Hawk Kites flagship store to indulge in ice cream and beach fare, enjoy crafty activities like hair wraps and sand art projects, pick up a kite to fly along the sand dunes, or just relax and explore everything this beloved landmark has to offer. Mondays are particularly special, as patrons can take a photo with a majestic on-site mermaid, and pick out a shell to receive a discount at the adjacent Scoops Homemade Ice Cream. With lots of ways to enjoy the scene, the Sunset Festival and Mermaid Mondays is a stunning summer event that can’t be missed.
