Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

  • Oriental’s Spirit of Christmas gets going on Friday December 8…and it’s about lights. The festival’s newest tradition, the Paddle Flotilla of lighted motorless small boats, should be coming in to view in the harbor around5p/sunset. Better yet, you can be part of it – festoon your kayak, canoe, SUP with lights and join the nautical parade. Larry Summers, who is organizing the December 8 flotilla says,

    “If you would like, please join us with your decorated paddled or rowed vessel. We will meet at the Oriental Wildlife Ramp at 4:30p for a 4:45p departure. (If you need to decorate at the ramp, please come earlier.) It is a xrelatively short paddle and we will stay within the Oriental Harbor. Sunset is around 5p. With luck and clear skies we might catch the sunset over Greens Creek. If you are launching from somewhere other than the Wildlife Ramp try to time it so you arrive in the harbor at about 5p.”
    Once in the harbor, the paddlers parade back and forth near the spectators who’ve come to the Town Docks and Hodges Street waterfront to watch the flotilla and the lighting of the Oriental Star (circa 5:30p) accompanied by some holiday songs. Questions? Contact Larry Summers at 252-675-0467.
