Today at 10:45 am the Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held on the lawn of the Ocracoke United Methodist Church. All children and their families are invited to participate.

Tonight "Ocracoke Alive" presents its annual OcraFolk Festival Easter Fundraising Concert at 7:30 at the Community Center. Cost is $15 for adults, and $7 for children. Come on out for music, stories, and tasty treats. Coffee will be served.

Tomorrow a throng of people will gather at the Lifeguard beach for the annual Easter Sunrise Service sponsored by the Ocracoke Methodist Church and the Ocracoke Assembly of God.

These rituals have been part of Ocracoke's spring tradition for many decades. Easter services will be held tomorrow at 11am at both local churches.

Happy Easter to all of our readers.

    Old traditions are the best.
    A wonderful Easter to all!

  2. I love the social life you have on Ocracoke, but I am jealous.

    I learned something new today about Easter. It seems that Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox.

    That's a mouthful!
