Memorial Day Events in the Outer Banks

May 16, 2009
by Kathryn Lively

With the three-day holiday fast approaching, don’t think it’s too late to find a place to stay in the Outer Banks. Bring along family and friends, and you may find you can still rent a vacation home at the beach for a reasonable price.  What you do during your vacation once you get to Currituck or other parts of the region is up to you – and most assuredly the options are endless. Memorial Day in the Outer Banks, however, does offer a few special celebrations for locals and visitors to come together and remember those who fought for our freedoms, that we can enjoy our leisure time throughout the year.

Come to Currituck this Memorial Day weekend and join use for the following events:
