'Twas a near perfect day for the fifth Ocracoke Music & Storytelling Festival. In spite of a brief rain shower early in the morning, the day turned out to be just right. Clouds kept the temperature down, especially in the afternoon.
Musicians, storytellers, cloggers, & mimes kept audiences' attention from three different stages, while artists and craftspeople along Howard Street & School Road sold pottery, carvings, artwork, and more.
We are all looking forward to an evening of more music and dance tonight in the school gymnasium where Molasses Creek will play for an old-time Ocracoke square dance.
Tomorrow the festival will wind down with more bluegrass & gospel music, as well as an afternoon auction.
