Come Down East for a night of Christmas decorations all over the Island including the museum. Carvers, artists and crafters will be on hand outside (with lots more Christmas lights), the Gallery of Trees will be full display, the Museum Store open for business and the Carolina Decoy Collectors Display will be in place! This will be a casual walk-through with Christmas goodies on the porch and music in the air! Free, families welcome.

Tailgating begins at 9am Saturday with carvers, collectors, artists, photographers and crafters here to help you with your Christmas shopping. The Museum Store will be open 9am to 9pm with Crab Pot Trees, Island Anchors and a new collection of Christmas and Core Sound wearables. Waterfowl Weekend Church will be held in the parking lot at 8am Sunday Morning with sausage biscuits and cheesy grits to go! As always, admission is free and everyone is welcome.
