Visiting the Outer Banks for Independence Day? There is a lot to do this holiday weekend. Kick off your celebration right by joining the town of Duck, North Carolina as it celebrates its Annual 4th of July Parade. The parade takes place on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 9 a.m. Named one of ABC News’ “Top 10 small-town 4th of July celebrations,” this is not an event to miss. After the parade, there will be music, awards and refreshments at Town Park.
Next, spend Independence Day morning at Island Farm. The farm will host its annual Independence Day 1850 event. Explore the historical site and experience life on Roanoake Island in the 1800s. The festivities take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include musket-fire, games for kids and a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Admission is $8 per person for family members older than 5 years of age. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.
Finally, firework shows will be held at Nags Head Pier, Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills and Festival Park on Roanoke Island. All take place on July 4 and begin at dusk. From 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. the United States Marine Corps 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band will play at the outdoor pavilion in Festival Park as well.
Enjoy all the festivities this important and exciting weekend has to offer, then head back to Surf Side Hotel each night. We look forward to spending the holiday with you!
