Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

Burning Dragon Feb 2 @ The Silos

In Nevada they have the Burning Man Festival. In Oriental… it’s Burning Dragon. Pamlico County Arts Council hosts a burning dragon event right here in Oriental at The Silos. Arts Council Members will attend free, but those who are not members will each pay $25. Which will make you a member.

Since it is the Chinese Year of the Pig and it is occurring on the Sat. just before the Chinese New Year, the Silos is planning a Pig influenced menu. Bacon wrapped chicken, shrimp, etc.

Saltwater Gold provides the music.

Could you put an announcement on TownDock that we need the following to build the dragon with: Scrap wood (plywood, boards and panels, 2×4s, firring strips, 2×2s, etc.) Please not pressure treated or painted wood. Also need 2-3 Christmas trees to place inside to facilitate the burn. Branches – 1-3 inches in diameter (no newly cut, green wood as it will not burn) Materials can be dropped off behind the Red Rooster at The Silos Tues.-Sat. 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Ask for Kim, Chris or Silos manager and they will direct you where to put the wood. Deadline for drop off: January 17th. Anything you can do to help spread the word is appreciated greatly!
