Don your best Whoville attire and join us for a Grinch-themed celebration. The evening will kick off with the announcing of the 2023 Kure Beach Cheermeister, followed by a viewing of the 2000 version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” While the film is playing, you can visit different stations for face painting, Grinch crafts, cookie decorating, and photos with the Grinch. This event is free to attend, but the Town will be collecting donations for the Help Center of Federal Point.
The Kure Beach Cheermeister will represent the most festively decorated home in Kure Beach, as voted by the public. If you would like to nominate your home, please submit the online form along with 2 photos of your decorated home by the deadline. The Town will only accept self-nominations, as permission needs to be granted to publish the home photos and address for voting purposes.
Nominations are open from November 1st through December 6th at 5:00 PM. Voting will take place online between December 7th and December 13th. The winner will be contacted on December 14th and invited to receive their prize at the beginning of the Holiday Whoobie Whatty on Friday, December 15th.
