First Flight Society: Due to limitations on gathering size we will not be having our events at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Like almost every major event this year we are going Virtual! In conjunction with the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Outer Banks Forever, we will be doing a day of live and video activities online on Thursday, December 17th.  We still encourage people to go to the park, but we won’t be holding our ceremony. We also encourage everyone to watch the Celebration Fireworks put on by the town of Kill Devil Hills on Thursday evening. More details will follow as we flesh out the day’s schedule.

Town of Kill Devil Hills: In conjuction with the 117th Anniversary of the First Heavier-Than-Air Flight by Wilbur and Orville Wright in 1903, the Town’s annual fireworks event will be held Thursday, December 17, 2020, at dark, at the Avalon Pier. The Town is exploring the option of livestreaming this event so that everyone may choose to watch.
