The Town of Duck is in the news again—this time for receiving a $25,000 state grant to enhance our pedestrian walkways. The grant, which has been running for nine years, helps NC cities and towns create a comprehensive plan for expanding their pedestrian and bicycling opportunities. Since 2003, $3.6 million has been awarded through this grant program. Duck is already known for being pedestrian friendly. The sidewalks and boardwalk along the sound can get you anywhere in the town.
Great job Duck for winning this funding! We all look forward to seeing the improvements.
The Town of Duck Fourth of July Parade was a tremendous success. In its eighth year, the vibrant parade meandered by oceanfront and ocean side vacation rental homes, with over 8000 people standing along the sidelines. The Duck parade is the largest 4th of July parade on the Outer Banks. In fact, ABC news included it in their list of the best small town to celebrate Independence Day. What’s more, this year Duck marks its tenth anniversary as a town this year and the Fire Department has been servicing the community for 30 years this year!
