Beginning Friday, April 4th through Saturday April 12th, special activities are planned daily in celebration of our community and heritage here on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Land of Beginnings Festival will start off with the Children’s Faire with magicians, face painting, exhibits and more on Friday, April 4th at the Wright Brothers Pavilion in Kill Devil Hills. There will be a “Studio Tour” of local artists sponsored by the Dare County Arts Council. Beginning this year, a scholarship award will be given out to a “Living Legend” here on the Outer Banks at the annual community luncheon. On two nights of the festival week, stories and tales will be presented one at Roanoke Island Festival Park and the other at the Wright Brothers Pavilion. To top off the week, an annual black-tie dinner and dance will be held at the Pavilion to benefit The Lost Colony. Workshops for nonprofits and businesses such as PR for Dummies, Crisis Management, Ins and Outs of Advertising, and How to Create Effective Show Exhibits will be on this week’s event calendar. And… if that was not enough, also planned is a fashion show, county-wide art project, Dinner on the Grounds, photography contest, and more. More information will be given as we come closer to the event date.
