Outer Banks Seafood Festival and Mustang Rock & Roast – So Much to Do, So Little Time

An Outer Banks event dilemma. Seafood Festival, Mustang Rock & Roast or both?
An Outer Banks event dilemma. Seafood Festival, Mustang Rock & Roast or both?

We admit it. With the Outer Banks Seafood Festival and Mustang Rock & Roast happening this weekend, we have a real dilemma on our hands.

 Actually, it’s just Saturday that is causing all the angst.

Do we go to the Seafood Festival at the Nags Head Event Site with amazing food, a wonderful family atmosphere and a great musical lineup featuring Country Music Star Celeste Kellogg and local bluesman Mojo Collins and Triple Vision? Or do we head up to Corolla for the first day of Rock & Roast with amazing food, a wonderful family atmosphere and a great musical lineup?

Adding to the dilemma, Sunday is looking very iffy at this point in time with Tropical Storm Nestor forecast to be passing over the Outer Banks on Sunday. The forecast track looks promising at this point, with the storm apparently staying to the south of Corolla. However, the weather forecast for the day is calling for a lot of rain and some strong winds. Although those strong winds, according to the forecast shouldn’t go much above 20mph.

There is always the option of starting at the Seafood Festival and then heading north to Corolla. In theory, it could work the other way, but the Seafood Festival wraps up at 6:00 p.m. and the music at Rock and Roast goes until 10.

The Seafood Festival does feature 12 local restaurant preparing local seafood and that is a pretty big draw. On the other hand the Rock & Roast is all about music and Saturday North Carolina barbecue—that’s the roast. Sunday it’s oysters—the rock.

Such a dilemma. We’ll get back to you and let you know how we’ve resolved it.

So much to do a on the Outer Banks. Reserve your Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates home and see for yourself how wonderful the real Outer Banks is.
