Downtown Happenings


The past several weeks in downtown Morehead City were busy and a huge hit! Small Business Saturday and the Art Walk were a success on November 25. Several of our downtown businesses said it was their busiest one yet!

We then celebrated Christmas in Downtown on December 2 with a series of events, including Breakfast with Santa at Floyd’s, the Flotilla, the Tree Lighting and Chowder & Cheer. This year’s Chowder & Cheer sold more than 500 tickets.

Chowder & Cheer winners were then announced at the Morehead City Christmas Parade on December 9. Despite a rainy start, the parade was another success. Congratulations to Parrott’s on 11th for being voted the best Chowder and Dee Gee’s for being voted the best Cheer for 2017!

We look forward to seeing you downtown as you continue your holiday shopping and we look forward to welcoming your family to Downtown Countdown on New Year’s Eve.
