Columbus Day Weekend-Music Fest Time on the Outer Banks

Revivalists performing Saturday Night at the Mustang Music Festival.

Two great music festivals and almost great weather . . . it doesn’t get much better than that.

The 4th Annual Mustang Music Festival kicked everything off on Friday with new digs-the Whalehead Club in Corolla-and a fantastic lineup.

Then Saturday came for the second day of the the festival and if it wasn’t for a front that came roaring through about 3:00 in the afternoon it would have been a second perfect day. New Madrid had to cut things short (they go to perform later at Sundogs), but after an hour and a half, the rain and wind had stopped and the music began again.

Really difficult to pick out a favorite, but local-and national touring band-TR3 really killed it on Friday night. Saturday night? Have to go with the Revivalists out of New Orleans, although the New Mastersounds who wrapped the show up on Saturday were nothing short of excellent.

That all got followed by the 8th Annual Duck Jazz Festival today.

Great weather, great musicians, all of it free in a beautiful outdoor setting. It would be difficult to imagine a better day.

Columbus Day Weekend, every year, the two festivals go back to back. The perfect time to visit the Outer Banks.
