The ECU Four Seasons Chamber Music musicians in perfomance.
The weather is milder, the days are longer, people are coming again to the Outer Banks and suddenly there is so much to do that it’s just not possible to get to everything this weekend.
Almost all of it is on Saturday, although as we mentioned earlier, the ESA Regional surf competition runs from Friday through Sunday at Jennette’s Pier.
It is possible to get to every event we’re going to list on Saturday, although we’ll be the first to admit its would make for a pretty exhausting day.
But if that’s the plan, head over to Jennette’s Pier and check out the morning surf action at the ESA Regionals.
Then head over to First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills for the Relay for Life. It’s only a 10 to 15 minute ride, so it’s easily accomplished.
The Relay for Life begins at 10:00 a.m. and is an all day event. The Outer Banks has a tradition of supporting the Relay for Life cause so there will probably be quite a number of people there.
About 2:45 or 3:00 o’clock, hop in your car and head over to the Elizabethan Gardens for the Kentucky Derby Party. Last year’s event was a blast, and supported three very important Outer Banks nonprofits—The Elizabethan Gardens, the Dare Education Fund and the Beach Food Pantry.
While there, be sure to sample some of the outstanding fare prepared by local chefs and maybe have a mint julep.
At 6:15—at the latest—it’s back in the car for a trip to All Saints Episcopal Church in Southern Shores for the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival.
This will be the perfect way to end a pretty hectic day.
The musicians of the Four Seasons Chamber Music are five internationally-renowned musicians in residence, teaching and performing at ECU. Their repertoire spans centuries of classical music from the 18th century to modern times.
The performance begins at 7:00 p.m.
It can be done…not easily…but it can be done. Good luck!
