Welcome back to our final installment of the ‘What’s on your Outer Banks Bucket List’ In this post, we will be covering Summer. While it may seem silly to be thinking about your Summer vacation now, we promise that it’s never too early. Summer is an excellent time to visit the Outer Banks as the weather is perfect with just a few afternoon summer showers. Staying in one of our OBX Vacation rentals will allow you and your family to explore the Outer Banks even more this Summer.
40th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival
As summer vacation begins and the temperature rises, the 40th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival begins. The weekend of June 17th – 19th, 2022, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, is hosted by Kitty Hawk Kites at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. Some of the fun things that you can experience at this festival are taking part in a free stunt kite lesson, learning about the different kinds of kites, coloring activities for the kids, or flying your kite. For many families, going to the beach and getting to fly that kite can be the highlight of your trip! Joe Lamb Jr. & Associates are a proud sponsor of the Boardwalk & a Friend of Jockey’s Ridge State Park.
The Lost Colony
Another great thing that happens every summer is enjoying The Lost Colony shows. This is a production put on by actors and performers sharing the story of the 117 English men, women, and children whose dream was to live in America. This outdoor drama has become a tradition for many families to not miss every summer. This year The Lost Colony is celebrating its 85th year, and we are proud to be sponsors of this incredible act. Be sure to get your tickets today for your next trip to the Outer Banks.
16th Annual Watermelon Festival
Summertime is a great time to spend with friends and family while enjoying some freshly cut watermelon as you sit on the deck of your OBX vacation rental together. We had to share with you the 16th Annual Watermelon Festival on Thursday, August 4th, 2022, from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. This year it will be at Kitty Hawk Kites located in Nags Head and featuring many fun things. Some of the things you can enjoy are Watermelon Themed Competitions, Watermelon Bowling, Face Painting, and more. Plus, there will be plenty of vendors that will have some delicious food to try out. Admission to the festival is free, but you will need to purchase tickets to enjoy the activities. Don’t miss out on this fun adventure this summer with the family.
We know that the possibilities are endless when you vacation to the Outer Banks during the summer, but we wanted to share a few more things on the list.
- Have a picnic on the beach with the family – pack a lunch with the kids, bring the cooler filled with drinks & enjoy spending time together on the beach.
- Explore Historic Corolla and visit the Whalehead Club
- Go Deep Sea Fishing or do a little Surf Fishing with the family
- Create new memories with the family
The Outer Banks is always a different experience for many during the summer months, and we promise that you’ll enjoy every moment you have. Staying in one of our OBX vacation rentals, you’ll be close to the fun each summer. We’d like to know what is on your #OBXBucketList this summer?
