One of our favorite legends, mentioned elsewhere in these pages, is soon to achieve new celebrity on Ocracoke when the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce Hatteras-Ocracoke Council presents the 1st Annual Blackbeard Pirate Jamboree on 26-27 October.
Featured will be an all-day encampment at Wahab House by Blackbeard’s Pirate Crew, a living history troupe, and a busy schedule of various relevant events and enactments depicting life in the days of plunder on the high seas.
A few days later, of course, we will be observing Hallowe’en, always a fun time on Ocracoke. It’s a really old-timey occasion when the young, and some not so young, actually costume up and meander from door to door, seeking and receiving goodies which provide immunity from tricks.
