7.05- Croaker Festival Fireworks

"Croakerfest," held in Oriental on the first weekend in July, brought fireworks to Smith Creek and the NC 55 bridge. This picture is taken from a Dock B of Oriental Harbor Marina.

Yesterday evening (July 4), as I was leaving my reading spot under the Mimosa Tree next to the Dinghy Dock, I was approached by half a dozen Oriental visitors asking me where they should go to watch the fireworks, only to be disappointed to learn that in Oriental, fireworks are scheduled for Croakerfest, and only fall on July 4 if that happens to be the first Saturday of July.

Hopefully they all decided to stay in town another night to see tonight's display.
