We’re getting a pretty good read on what the weather is going to be like for New Year’s Eve for anyone who’s thinking of heading to the Manteo Waterfront to bring in 2019.
It’’s looking…not bad. A bit of a caveat there, because there is the possibility of a spot of rain. However, even if it does rain, everything the forecast is indicating seems to say it would be a very light shower and over quickly.
So—for anyone thinking of heading to Manteo, things are looking good.
Since we’re talking about things to do on the Outer Banks, this is a great time to mention a few upcoming January events.
There is not nearly as much to do in January as July or August, but there are still events worth checking out.
For couples who are thinking about or planning on getting married, do not miss the Outer Banks Wedding Expo January 19 and 20 at First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills. With over 120 vendors on hand and more being added all the time, the Expo is a great use of a couple’s time as the wedding day approaches.
The following weekend on January 26 there are two events and it’s unfortunate that two such great happening are occurring on the same day.
The 41st Annual Frank Stick Memorial Art Show will be a bitter sweet event this year. Glenn Eure, the founder of the event and a remarkable artist and part of the Outer Banks community passed away in October.
The Frank Stick Show is always a joy to behold as Outer Banks artists fill the walls with remarkable artistry. But Glenn will be missed. It should be a special night at the Dare County Arts Council Gallery for the show’s opening.
That same evening the Outer Banks Forum will will be bringing Molly Tuttle to the First Flight High School stage. Tuttle is very much a rising talent in the world of bluegrass, but by describing her music as bluegrass is really unfair to her sound and the skill of her guitar playing.
