Gather ‘round Ocracoke’s Silver Lake Harbor on the evening of July 3rd to enjoy a fabulous fireworks display! The 4th kicks off with a flag-raising ceremony at the school circle and the annual Sand Sculpture Contest. Other activities include lighthouse tours, a vintage car show, and live music. Ocracoke invites everyone to participate in the 4th of July Parade! Visitors and locals build floats, decorate bikes and golf carts, or sing, dance, and juggle to amuse the crowds that gather for the late-afternoon parade. Most events sponsored by the Ocracoke Civic & Business Association.
