There are few better ways to celebrate the start of oyster season than with an oyster roast and North Carolina barbeque. For more than 10 years, the First Flight Rotary Club has sponsored the Oink and Oyster Roast as a fundraiser for nonprofit organizations in Dare County. This event is open to everyone with a love of oysters and a hearty appetite. The First Flight marching band provides live music that will have your feet tapping as you’re shucking oysters. Come on out to Longboard’s restaurant in Kitty Hawk for a day of oysters, barbeque, friends and community fun. This event is usually held the second weekend in October.
