Outer Banks Holiday Duck Style
Posted by Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales | Sunday, December 7, 2014

The Village of Duck seems to have their own way of going about things, and certainly their Holiday celebration is not an exception to that rule.

Most places light a Christmas Tree; Duck stacks crab pots seven high, string multi-colored lights on it, put a lighted duck on top and use that for their holiday tree lighting ceremony. It’s all in good fun and as important as anything else they do, it’s very much in keeping with the spirit of the season.

Santa does make an appearance, riding into the Village Green where the festivities are held, in a fire truck with sirens wailing. The Santa Duck brings to the kids, may be the best ever—he actually talks to every single child who comes to visit him. A little bit slower than usual, but for the kids well worth the wait because Santa truly shows an interest in what is happening in their lives.

The Town of Duck always invites a couple of local charities. For the past couple of years it’s been Food for Thought, a local group who makes sure every school child in Dare County has a breakfast and lunch during the school year. The other charity that was there was the Outer Banks SPCA.

Actually, town officials go out of their way to make sure the event is pet friendly and there are dogs everywhere. Happy dogs too, as far as we could tell.

Music by Emme St. James, a remarkable vocalist from Richmond. The rain held off until the ceremonies were done, the cookies and coffee were free . . . a great way to begin celebrating the holidays.
