Ocracoke Square Dance

Ruth Fordon, editor of the Ocracoke Observer, sent me the following photos she took of the July 4th Ocracoke Squaredance (click on any photo to view a larger image). I thought our readers would enjoy seeing how much fun folks were having. Afterwards the Aaron Caswell Band kept a crowd of hundreds enthralled with two hours of classic rock and roll. As they say, "A good time was had by all!" Notice the range of ages of people dancing.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a tribute to the memory of indepent islander Don Wood. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news062110.htm.

    Well, it appears as if these folks have have good hearing and can process information quickly. I like the traditional native costumes and their willingness to follow instructions . Is there not an urge to wear red white and blue on the island ?

    Perhaps islanders and visitors wear whatever suits them, "in the spirit of Independence."
