Thanksgiving Weekend in Avalon
Friday, November 27:
Kick off the holidays with Festive Friday in Avalon! Head to Dune Drive for carriage rides, live music, children’s performances, crafts, giveaways and more.

Gather safely along Dune Drive and watch as the island lights up for the holidays! Following the lighting, head east to the beach: The Avalon Recreation Department will be hosting drive-in movies at 6pm at the 30th Street parking lot Friday and Saturday.
