Outer Banks Weekend-Can’t Sit Still
By Kip Tabb –
Another weekend and another four days of a lot to do and too little time on the Outer Banks. Of course the weekends keep getting extended so it’s not just Saturday and Sunday anymore.
Activities kicked off with the 21st Annual Parade of Home. A four day event, Thursday through Sunday, we only got to three homes today, but if the other 19 properties are this good, the event will be one to remember.
Jeff Ballard, who writes Hammertime for the North Beach Sun, was on hand at the Circle Drive home he built in Southern Shores. A visually stunning home–especially the interior–it is light and airy and filled with touches that make it unique. It’s a little over 4000 square feet of living space, but that doesn’t include the salt water pool and huge outdoor living area.
Then it was over to Crooked Back Lane–still in Southern Shores–where Keith Dobie of KJ Construction has used the space within the house he built in some very creative ways.
Finally we headed up to Scarborough Lane in Duck where Mark and Sandy Martin of Sandmark Construction have just finished a complete remodel. Spectacular hardly begins to describe what they have accomplished–especially when looking at some of the before images.
The Parade of Homes is not the only event filling the Outer Banks calendar this weekend. Mike Dianna’s 3rd Annual Mustang Music Festival kicks off tomorrow (Friday) with two full days of music in Corolla. It’s all for a good cause–the Corolla Wild Horse Fund–and with two venues for music on site, there is always a band playing. Don’t forget to check out the North Beach Sun Silent Disco.
Good thing Mustang Music ends on Saturday, because Sunday is the Duck Jazz Festival. A guaranteed day of great music. It’s free and it’s perfect for the whole family.
