Signs of Christmas are all around us on the Outer Banks. Heck, we even had a 3 hour snow storm the week before Thanksgiving! While traditions around the country start to kick in, one of the happiest traditions on the Outer Banks is the 20th annual Outer Banks Hotline Festival of Trees.
The Outer Banks Hotline is a non-profit human services organization which provides crisis intervention, temporary shelter, information and referrals to residents and visitors of the Outer Banks. The Festival of trees is their annual fundraiser where businesses and citizens donate and decorate Christmas trees which are auctioned off and the proceeds go to help with the many programs that Hotline sponsors.
It is truly a unique holiday tradition on the Outer Banks and it takes place this coming weekend at the Outer Banks Brewing Station.
I look forward to seeing you there. Happy Holidays!
