  1. Connie,
    I would like more info on the Ocracoke Seafood Festival on Aug 31 — Ticket prices. Types of seafood available, Who is providing the food?, Does the ticket price include the food or is the food purchased separately from vendors? The festival website does not answer these questions. Providing this info could attract more tourists and day-trippers to the festival.
    Thanks for another great issue of the Observer.

    • Hi, Melvin. Thanks for your message. We are awaiting more details and will post this information soon. I do know that $10 gets you one of the three types of seafood (with fixings) that will be offered and $30 gets you all three. Beer is paid for separately.
