Hawks Nest Beach 4th of July Parade

Independence Day Parade and Activities

One of our favorite traditions at Hawk’s Nest is the annual Independence Day parade and activities. Every year on the 4th of July kids of all ages meet at Garvin’s Store to decorate their bikes, scooters, strollers and golf carts.  We then march down to the West End and back.  Following the parade is a plethora of fun activities on S-Street such as watermelon eating contest, water balloon toss, egg toss, greased pole and much more.  Feeling hungry, not to worry, the Garvin Boys are always cooking up hot dogs, mixing up Lemonade and scooping Ice Cream for everyones enjoyment.  So much fun is had by all!


Friday Talent Show

Gather around Garvin’s Store every Friday afternoon for a long withstanding Hawk’s Nest Beach tradition, the weekly Talent Show. In this end of the week culmination activity, guests of all ages are encouraged to showcase their talents for their friends, family members and fellow beach goers. Not sure what to perform? Don’t worry, you have plenty of time while relaxing on the beach taking in the sun and surf to develop a routine. Grab your family or friends and start practicing. The more creative the better! The activity staff at Hawk’s Nest has seen it all, and loved every second of it. From song and dance, to magic shows, to comedy routines, every talent is appreciated. We look forward to the talent show every week, it truly is the highlight of the activity schedule!


Tennis Courts

While packing for your stay at Hawk’s Nest, don’t forget to pack your sneakers and tennis racquets. Guests are invited and encouraged to use either of the two tennis courts that are centrally located on the property. The opportunities for fun are endless from watching your little one learn to ride their bike for the first time or even creating your very own unique activity. The tennis courts have, and will continue to provide, the backdrop for countless family memories.
