Thanksgiving Parade
EI Sea Turtle Patrol Float
November 30, 2019

Creating the EI Sea Turtle Patrol float every year for the Thanksgiving parade is great fun. There is no better way to spend the Saturday after Thanksgiving than watching the parade or joining us on the float throwing out candy to spectators.

EI St. Patrick's Day Festival

Every March at Emerald Isle's signature event, the St. Patrick's Festival, the EI Sea Turtle Patrol has a booth. We have information on sea turtles, tell you how you can get involved, and raffle off door prizes.

EI Marathon
March 2020

EI Sea Turtle Patrol hands out water and encourages runners during the Emerald Isle Marathon. The marathon is held every spring and raises money for two great causes each year. In 2018, the money raised benefited the EI bike path and also Little Pink Houses of Hope, an organization devoted to providing assistance to breast cancer victims and their families.
