Bluegrass, Clays and ‘Que

March 24 - 26, 2017

The Discovery Weekend for March 24 – 26 will be a celebration of the coastal lifestyle we enjoy here at River Dunes.

For our real estate guests, we’ll kick things off on Friday evening with a private Porch Party at the waterfront home of one of our owners.  Friday’s dinner, featuring locally sourced items, will be at the Harbor Club.

On Saturday morning, our property owners, club members, and real estate guests are welcome to shoot clays on the Riverside.  No matter your skill level or experience in shooting clays, you are invited to join in the fun.  We’ll have experienced instructors to teach you the ropes and make sure that everyone has a great time while enjoying beautiful Neuse River views.

There will be two community overview sessions on Saturday to learn more about River Dunes and real estate opportunities. Your sales agent will schedule your private community tour so that you have time to participate in the Clay Shooting and afternoon festivities.

On Saturday evening, the nationally recognized restaurant, PICNIC of Durham, NC, will be providing us with an award-winning barbecue with all the trimmings at our Pavilion, located right on the Harbor.  The fun will begin at 4:00 with live bluegrass music, local craft breweries, and some delicious traditional North Carolina food (yummmm…banana pudding, anyone??).

The cost of the weekend is $299 per couple, including 2 nights in a Guest Cottage at River Dunes, plus tickets to all the events. For Club Members, Slip Leasees and Property Owners, call for tickets. Call 252-249-0253 to reserve a spot!

It’s all about the Water at River Dunes!

May 26 - 29, 2017

Our May Discovery Weekend, scheduled for Memorial Day, May 26-29, will be a celebration of all the wonderful things that the waterfront lifestyle we enjoy here at River Dunes offers.

For our real estate guests, we’ll kick things off on Friday evening with a Sunset Wine and Cheese Cruise aboard Miss Grace, our restored 1932 Core Sounder. Dinner, following the cruise, will be at the Harbor Club and will feature locally-sourced dishes.

On Saturday morning, Continental Breakfast and coffee will be served at the Provision Company. At 10:00, a casual information session about River Dunes neighborhoods will be held in one of the Boathouse Row homes. Your sales agent will schedule your private community tour and boat ride on Saturday afternoon.

At 3:00, we’ll kick off the summer season with one of our favorite activities, a Raft-Up.  River Dunes owners and club members will be “rafting up” their boats in nearby Broad Creek.  There will be great food, ample beverages, and lots of fun on the water.  You don’t need a boat to join in the fun – we’ll have a “ferry” running back and forth to the dock all afternoon.

At 6:00, we’ll join one of our owners in their waterfront home for a laid-back Porch Party, followed by a casual dinner.

On Sunday afternoon at 3:00, you won’t want to miss a live performance by The Entertainers, one of North Carolina’s best Beach Music bands.  There will be plenty of food, beverages, and great music that will get you up on your feet and dancing.

The cost of the weekend is $399 per couple, including 3 nights in a Guest Cottage at River Dunes and all weekend activities.  Call 252-249-0253 or email frontdesk@riverdunes.com for reservations or information.

 

 

 

 

 

Dragon Boat Races in Grace Harbor

August 11 - 12, 2017

Once again, River Dunes Grace Harbor will serve as the location for the 2017 Dragon Boat Races.  This colorful event features teams of racers from organizations and communities all over the Southeast.  Dragon Boats are the world’s largest flat water racing canoes, propelled by a crew of 20 rowers, plus a drummer and a steersperson.  Teamwork is everything in Dragon Boat racing, and synchronicity outweighs strength.  In addition to the dragon boat racing, other activities will include great food, music, kids activities, a parade of teams and much, much more for friends and family.

Last year, the team from River Dunes won the Team Spirit Award.  This year, they are going for the gold!
