...Ocracoke will host the tenth annual Music and Storytelling Festival. We call it the OcraFolk Festival. Posters and banners have been put up all over the village. If you are on the island, or planning to be, this Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday, be sure to wander down School Road and Howard Street. Two stages will be set up for performances (one next to Books to be Red, the other next to Village Craftsmen), and artisans' booths will line the roads.
In addition to music, stories, and crafts there will be a pot luck dinner & auction (Friday evening), a square dance (Saturday evening), food vendors, kids' activities, chainsaw sculpture demonstrations, and a wandering mime.
You can read more about the festival here. Hope to see you this weekend.
