2017 Independence Day Schedule Looking Great
Posted by Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales | Friday, June 30, 2017

2016 Independence Day Parade, Duck, NC.

The Outer Banks is gearing up for the 4th of July which falls on Tuesday this year. The usual suspects are on hand, but it we do have a bit of an extension of festivities this year.

For anyone up in Corolla, this is the 25th Anniversary of the Fireworks at the Whalehead Club so they should be pretty spectacular. Currituck County, who manages the Whalehead Club and the Heritage Park always turns the day into an all day celebration and this year is no exception beginning at noon.

That's just about perfect timing to catch the Town of Duck Parade first. If ever there was a perfect celebration of small town life and what it means to be an American with all its wonderful idiosyncrasies, this is it. The parade begins at 9:00, but get there early. Parking can be a challenge.

Of course the other way to go is to head down to Manteo and take in the all day festivities beginning at 3:00 in the afternoon. The 208th Army band will be on hand at Roanoke Island Festival Park for an 8:00 p.m. performance followed by fireworks.

There may be no better place to celebrate our nation’s birth than on the beach with the vast sea as a backdrop. Two chances this year—Nags Head on July 4th and Kill Devil Hills on Friday, July 5.
