Duck, Ocracoke latest to cancel July 4 events

By on May 11, 2020

Duck: With heavy hearts, the Town has made the decision to cancel Town sponsored summer events through July 5. This includes the 4th of July parade and community celebration. We will miss these opportunities to enjoy our community members. The Town Park and Boardwalk will remain open, and we look forward to providing entertainment when it’s safe to gather again.

In addition, the scheduling of programming after July 5 will be determined as we get more information from the state.

Ocracoke: The Ocracoke Civic and Business Association, in coordination with Hyde County, has canceled the 2020 Fourth of July activities and the annual Fireworks display planned for July 2. This difficult decision follows guidance from the CDC and State of North Carolina regarding safety impacts associated with large gatherings.  We look forward to a fantastic event for 2021, a Celebration of our Nation coming together. So, please mark your calendars.

“The health and safety of the community and our visitors is our first priority,” said Rudy Austin, OCBA Board President. “We look forward to the time when we can all get together again and celebrate all the things that make Ocracoke such a special community.”

The island is getting ready for the season by implementing safety precautions and social distancing, and we are excited to have you join us and do the same.
