Spring is here and the Outer Banks event calendar is really filling up.
The big event covering all of the upcoming week is the 12th Annual Outer Banks Bike Week. You couldn’t tell it by today because it’s a little bit windy and chilly outside, but all the forecasts are in agreement that after a little rain on Saturday–when it starts–the weather look pretty good. And by the end of the week, downright spectacular.
Of course there is more than just the Bike Week.
The Outer Banks Duathlon–bike and running–is this Saturday beginning at 7:00 a.m. Starting and finishing at Jennette’s Pier, the course includes a beach run and a ride around Bodie Island Lighthouse.
The weekend is filled with Easter Egg Hunts . . . too many to list here, but three that have been around a while and stood the test of time are at the Whalehead Club in Corolla, the Cotton Gin on the mainland, and Kitty Hawk Kites across from Jockey’s Ridge in Nags Head.
Then next weekend it gets even busier with the Duck & Wine Festival on the Waterfront Shops in Duck on the 26th, that’s Saturday. Also on the 26th, comedian Heywood Banks will be at the Lost Colony on Roanoke Island for a one night fundraiser.
The days are getting longer, the weather milder and event calendar is getting ready for summer.
