Three towns on the Outer Banks are sticking to their budgets and not biting on beach nourishment bids that exceeded the amount of money on hand which means beach nourishment is on hold for another year.
It was announced this week that access to and from the Outer Banks will be more difficult this winter.The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced in a press release this week one of the two bridges that serves as the main connection to the Outer Banks will be closed for a period of 8 months beginning in Mid-September of this year and continuing until Mid-May of 2014.

Get there early, park, and walk to get a Duck Donut and have your beach buckets ready for candy & goodies! If you are staying in Duck, just pack up the stroller or wagon and make your way to the perfect spot for your family! The parade is followed by a day of celebration together with live music and refreshments.
