We have some great entertainment on the Outer Banks coming up this weekend, and no matter where you’re staying while visiting, there is going to be something to do. 

The big event for the weekend is the 4th Annual Mustang Music Spring Jam at Mike Dianna’s Grill Room in Timbuck II in Corolla on Sunday, May 17.

Once again Mike Dianna has managed to find some of the best musicians around—national acts that don’t play to the large auditoriums but are really worth checking out. Two in particular this year rise to the surface—New Madrid with their tight southern rock sound combine a classic sound with some new ways to think about music.

Josh Daniel with the Mark Schimick Project takes bluegrass to a new place . . . somewhere between rock, bluegrass and blues. Tight and innovative. Really worth a listen.

At the other end of the Outer Banks the 43rd Annual Hang Gliding Spectacular will be happening all weekend at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head. As much a celebration and reunion of hang gliding pilots who have been coming to the competition for years, events include a block party on Friday night at Kitty Hawk Kites and dune flying all weekend.

It’s all free, the setting is spectacular and it’s really interesting watching what some of the more experienced pilots can do with their gliders.
