OCRACOKE ISLAND’S 2020 FOURTH OF JULY EVENTS AND FIREWORKS CANCELED
OCRACOKE, NC – May 11, 2020 - The Ocracoke Civic and Business Association
The Ocracoke Civic and Business Association, in coordination with Hyde County, has canceled the 2020 Fourth of July activities and the annual Fireworks display planned for July 2nd. This difficult decision follows guidance from the CDC and State of North Carolina regarding safety impacts associated with large gatherings. We look forward to a fantastic event for 2021, a Celebration of our Nation coming together. So, please mark your calendars.
“The health and safety of the community and our visitors is our first priority,” said Rudy Austin, OCBA Board President. “We look forward to the time when we can all get together again and celebrate all the things that make Ocracoke such a special community.”
While we will not be hosting our scheduled events, Ocracoke Island will be open to visitors. Come enjoy our beautiful beaches, wander the village, and support our local businesses that have been working so hard to recover from Hurricane Dorian. Ocracoke is already known for our miles of secluded beaches, outstanding fishing, plentiful outdoor activities, our oak-lined Village streets for walking and biking – all are activities recommended under the CDC guidelines for health and well-being during this Coronavirus pandemic.
