An Exciting New Event – THIS Weekend!
On Saturday, June 25th, The Surf City Taxpayer Association (SCTA) will sponsor the first ever “Surf City Community Day.” The event is designed to bring all facets of the community together to showcase all that makes Surf City special for homeowners, visitors and shoppers of all ages. With the purchase of a $10 wristband, you will be able to get all of the special “Day-Of Deals” at participating Surf City businesses, and you can enter to win a big prize!
25 Things To Do June 25
