October seems to have become the month for special events on the Outer Banks. The 4th Annual Outer Banks Seafood Festival is coming up this Saturday and the rescheduled BrewTag will be taking (attempted) flight next Saturday, October 24. And all of that is coming on the heels of last weekend’s Mustang Music Festival and Duck Jazz Festival.
The Outer Banks Seafood Festival at the Event Site in Nags Head is an amazing celebration of the fishing heritage of the Outer Banks, and with local fishermen providing the freshest seafood imaginable and local chefs whipping up great recipes, it’s an event not to be missed.
The food is not the only thing that makes this a day to be out in the sun-there’s great music all day long and some excellent cooking demos.
Over the past two years there have been a few thousand people attending and the weather is looking about as good as it gets, so a good-sized crowd should be on hand. Parking can be a challenge-check out the Seafood Festival website for information.
Also at the Nags Head Event Site, BrewTag will be attempting to take flight the following Saturday. Sponsored by Kitty Hawk Kites, this one should be a lot of fun. The object is to create an aircraft that will carry a 1/6 keg-empty-the farthest distance . . . at a glide, of course.
