Firemen's Ball

This Saturday the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department will be holding their eighth annual Firemen's Ball at the Community Center.

The day's celebration begins with a pig pickin' followed by a silent & a live auction. Music and dancing with the Ocracoke Rockers, the Aaron Caswell Band, and the Dune Dogs round out the evening.

    It sounds like lots of fun, but I can't find information anywhere about when the event begins. I don't want to miss the pig pickin.

    1. I noticed that also. The pig pickin' usually begins around 4 or 5 o'clock. Maybe one of our readers knows.
