The Last Dance Womanless Beauty Pageant sponsored by Brindley Beach Vacations coming up November 4 at Kelly’s Outer Banks Tavern is, of course, the one not-to-miss-at-any-costs event of the fall season. It is not, however, the only event happening over the next few weeks.

We’ve already mentioned the Outer Banks Seafood Festival happening this Saturday at the Nags Head Event Site, but that’s not the last event of the season at that location.

The following weekend, on October 28, the folks at Kitty Hawk Kites bring out BrewTag, attempting to answer the burning question, “If mankind can fly, why not beer kegs?” The previous two BrewTags have answered that question with a resounding because they can’t. But who knows…maybe third time will be the charm.

For history buffs or the curious about what really happened to the Lost Colony, check out the OBX History Weekend at the US Fish & Wildlife Visitor Center on old US 64 on the west end of Roanoke Island. A Friday through Sunday event, the symposium will feature researchers and speakers from the United States and Britain.

Here’s the Details:
