Festival by the Sea

The Holden Beach Beautification Club will be sponsoring a booth at Festival by the Sea this weekend, October 27-28, featuring the skills of the very talented HBBC Art Committee Ladies.  They have worked all summer on fun items to add to your yard or give as gifts.  Watch for Snowmen to brighten your yard this winter, coastal Lighthouses for your deck, porch or garden, hypertufa leaves that can be used as bird baths or shallow planters, and our ever-popular mushrooms!

We also have the garden gloves that everyone raves about in all sizes – perfect for getting your fall garden set for the winter months!

New this year, we will be taking credit cards as well as cash!

Best of all, all proceeds from our booth go to fund the club and our mission to beautify the public garden areas of Holden Beach.
