Pirates to Invade Ocracoke!

September 29th, 2016 by Fred Westervelt

Good legends are hard to squelch- and this is one of the best…

Re-enactment pirates, a la Blackbeard and friends, are returning to Ocracoke for the 4th Annual Pirate Jamboree October 28-30. This is Aargh and Avast land in spades, with dueling, a ship-to-ship running battle, encampments, handiwork and more.

These have been much fun in recent years, and as a dividend lead into Hallowe’en- costume contest, trick-or-treating and all. Safe and sane.

A complete schedule of events is available at www.ocracokevillage.com.

“In the Spring,,,

March 7th, 2016 by Fred Westervelt

…when a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of…”  Ocracoke, of course- the beach, boating, friends and fun.

Officially 20 March, but already one senses a softness in the air, the blooming daffodils, and car tracks on the beach. Restaurants and others are coming alive after the winter break, and one must again look before crossing the road. On the 27th is the Easter Sunrise Service- on the beach facing east over the Atlantic, the sun lifts gloriously over the purest of horizons. An uplifting experience.

So many events coming up soon, come on down and join in the fun!
