The big event is FINALLY here!
Ocracoke Fireworks Tonight!
Casey Robertson

We are happy to announce that the weather looks perfect for tonight's fun times. Dive for the Oyster and Dig for the Clam (yes, those are real dance moves) at the Traditional Ocracoke Square Dance with Molasses Creek and caller Philip Howard from 6-8pm in the Berkley Barn! (Located behind the Berkley Manor; walk or bike because parking is limited.)

The Fireworks will be shot from the NPS parking lot (down by the boat ramp). Thanks to the National Park Service Rangers, Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, Dare County Fire Marshal, the Hyde County deputies, Hyde County Commissioners, Hyde County Emergency Management, Ocracoke Occupancy Tax Board, Ocracoke Civic & Business Association, the NC Ferry Division, and the U.S. Coast Guard for all their work to make the bombs-bursting-in-air happen again this year!  

The road will be closed on Hwy 12 past the intersection of British Cemetery Road for the fireworks. Please walk or bike! There will be some limited parking for golf carts. 

The deejays from Emerald Owl Productions will start spinning tunes down by the NPS docks around 8pm until the Fireworks begin at 9:15-ish. (Gotta wait til that last ferry leaves Ocracoke and gets far enough out in the sound -- what a view they will have!) 

Ocracoke Fireworks Tonight!
Then -- RED, WHITE, & BOOM!

Tomorrow's events start early and go late! Check out the poster below for the schedule.

If you're headed down to see the Lighthouse or hike at Springer's Point, please note: Pastor Ivey Belch asked us to spread the word that the Ocracoke Lifesaving Church parking area is available for Springers Point & Lighthouse parking. There are two donation boxes if you would like to make a donation for parking. He says, "We all know how crowded those roads and areas can be. Let's help keep vehicles off the side of the road, keep our kids safe and have a safe 4th of July week!"
