Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

Spirit of Christmas 2019 - Dec 13-14

The second weekend in December is when Oriental celebrates Spirit of Christmas. In 2019 it’ll be on Friday and Saturday, December 13-14. There is a lighted small boat parade – the Paddler’s Lighted Flotilla – in the harbor on Friday night – along with the lighting of the Oriental Star and luminaria along the streets.

The parade is Saturday – this year the parade will start at 2:30p. Just after the parade folks will gather at Lou Mac Park for a tree lighting at 4:00p. The theme for the 2019 Spirit Of Christmas Parade is My Traditional Christmas. Whatever a traditional Christmas means where you are from (folks in Oriental are from all over and come from many traditions) share that in your Christmas parade entry.

There are parade registration forms at the hardware store on Broad Street, or you can register to be in the Spirit Of Christmas parade online – click here.

Saturday’s events also include a live nativity and chorale music. And as always, there are the open houses at many businesses in town.

The 2019 schedule will be published about a week before the event. Meanwhile “take a peek at the schedule for Spirit of Christmas 2018: Schedule of events, click here
