The 4th, Oriental style. I found this…lawn ornament in town.
Things are really gearing up, not necessarily for the 4th which they celebrate with family picnics; the fireworks will wait for Saturday night.
The big boffo party is the Croakerfest, which is celebrated the weekend after the 4th. A Croaker is apparently a fish much loved down here. On Friday we’ve got The Pamlico County Band and Chorale, baking contest, Miss Minnow, and the Croaker Queen Pageant.
Saturday kicks off with the big parade leading into a sailing regatta with many different classes, music with Molasses Creek, culminating with fireworks over the harbor.
Sunday 8am we watch the dolphins at Lou-Mac-Park and help clean up! Community Church service to follow.
We will be watching the fireworks from the front porch of the Whitaker Point Marina.
The slip we’re in is very rolly and bouncy and is not doing Marce any favors so we might be watching from here.
