5 Incredible Reasons to Spend Labor Day on Bald Head Island

Labor Day marks the end of another summer, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy every last morsel of the season. If you’re looking for a fun place for an end-of-summer getaway, Labor Day on Bald Head Island is tough to beat. And the best part: there’s a little something for everyone. 

Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons to spend your Labor Day weekend on Bald Head Island this year. 

The Labor Day Weekend Cookout

Each year on BHI, folks gather at the Shoals Club for the annual Labor Day Cookout! Load a plate of scrumptious foods at this Texas Bar-B-Q themed buffet that features smoked meats and all the trimmings. There’s live music, too!   

It’s National Lighthouse Day Weekend 

In BHI, we celebrate our beloved lighthouse—Old Baldy—all weekend long. This event is jam packed with cocktail parties, living history reenactments, a family-friendly festival and more! The culminating event of the weekend is the 5k/10k race at dusk that finishes under Old Baldy’s light.  

Catch the End of Sea Turtle Nesting Season 

Sea turtle nesting season is a huge deal on BHI. And if you visit for Labor Day, you just might catch sight of some hatchlings. To get up close and personal with the sea turtles (safely), reserve a Turtle Walk with the Bald Head Island Conservatory

Labor Day Sales at the Island’s Boutiques 

Just like the big box stores on the mainland, the boutiques and shops on Bald Head Island slash prices in honor of Labor Day. Whether you’re looking for the perfect art piece or a trinket to take home from your travels, the shops on BHI have something for everyone who loves to shop. 

You’re Longing for One Last Summer Vacation

Slow time down with quiet beach trip where you don’t have to hustle, where you can ditch your car and drive bikes instead. It’ll be just the thing you need to prepare yourself for the busyness of fall.
