Just a Reminder

The Ocracoke Civic & Business Association has asked me to publish this photo to remind all of our residents and visitors that private fireworks displays (including sparklers and bottle rockets) are prohibited on Ocracoke Island, both on National Park Service land, and in the village.

This ordinance was enacted prior to last year's tragic explosion, and was designed to protect our beautiful island from fires started by private fireworks displays.

Please enjoy our July 4th celebration, and especially our evening music and dance activities at the Community Store parking lot.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is another tribute to islander and independent spirit Don Wood. You can read it here:

    If people want to celebrate well chose some sort of audience participation activity--- watermelon seed spitting -- creating those huge bubbles,-- cracking bull whips --cake walks -- ring toss ,old tyme carnival booth activities easily replicated on a budget. Fly the US flag, sing patriotic songs and perhaps read the the declaration of independence AND the Constitution aloud in the public square --yes, indeed -when was the last time Your readers thought about the Pursuit of happiness. and perhaps a moment of silence is in order for the memory of those that died in the united fight for freedom. Freedom is not free. God Bless America.
