Starting this Friday, the holidays truly get underway on the Outer Banks with tons of events and activities from Corolla all the way down to Hatteras Island. . Here are just a few of the highlights of the Outer Banks holiday events for everyone taking place throughout December.
The Town of Manteo Christmas Tree Lighting, Friday, December 6, 6pm
The Town of Manteo kicks off the holiday season with the Grand Illumination of the town’s tree on Queen Elizabeth Street in front of the historic courthouse.From there, the entire downtown waterfront area will look like a winter wonderland with holiday productions for people of all ages. And, yes, Santa will be there for all of the festivities. The high school choirs from Manteo and First Flight High Schools as well as the Manteo Elementary School will perform holiday carols that create the epitome of the Christmas spirit. This is a fun evening for everyone.
The Town of Manteo Christmas Parade, December 7, 10:30am
What would the holidays be without a Christmas parade? The Big Little Town Christmas Parade starts at 10:30 at Manteo High School. Following the parade, Santa will be at the Roanoke Island Maritime Museum for pictures with kids and to listen to their lists (parents, please pay attention!). Prior to the parade, there are pre-show activities planned in front of the Court House.
Great White Fishmas, December 7, 5:30-7:30pm
The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island is the place to be this Saturday night when Santa and the reindeer are on hand for a fun evening. With an aquatic spin on the traditional holiday activities, if the guests play their cards right, they may catch a glimpse of Santa scuba diving with the huge fish at the Aquarium’s Graveyard of the Atlantic exhibit. Additionally, when he is out of the water, kids can talk to their favorite toy maker about what they want. Mrs. Claus will also be there to help decorate cookies and make holiday crafts. Families will also be able to write a letter to Santa, enjoy holiday music, and be amazed at the Aquarium decorations. Open to all ages, tickets cost $15 per person or $13.50 rate for North Carolina Aquarium members. And, if you buy them before December 4 at 5pm, the Early Elf rate is only $10 per person. We strongly recommend buying tickets ahead of time as there are a limited number of tickets available. Oh, children must be accompanied by a paying adult. This is the first year for Great White Fishmas and is sure to be a favorite event that everyone loves.
Christmas in Corolla, Whalehead Club, Now through December 28, 10am – 9pm
The Whalehead Club comes alive at Christmastime. The historic home is decorated with just as the Knight’s did when it was a private home. There are tours throughout the day and evening for all to see. Stationed Legacy Tours happen Monday – Saturday, 10am to 5pm and cost $10 per person. For special holiday candlelight tours, plan your trip for Thursday through Saturday, 6pm to 9pm for $15 per person.
Holiday Illumination, Currituck Beach Lighthouse, December 6, 5pm
Friday, December 6 seems to be the night to light the trees on the Outer Banks. The northernmost lighthouse is in on the action with its own Holiday Illumination at the lighthouse and Currituck Heritage Park. Choruses from Water’s Edge Village School and Currituck County High School will perform outside before they head indoors to sing carols accompanied by Mrs. Knight’s sketch Steinway piano. There is absolutely nothing as wonderful as standing out in the crisp North Carolina sea air with the tree illuminated and the sound of the surf in the distance. Dress warmly as it gets awfully chilly when the sun sets on the Outer Banks!
Winter Lights Festival, Now – January 4, 2014, Elizabethan Gardens
The Winter Lights Festival at the Elizabethan Gardens is under way. As one of the grandest displays of sparkling lights and holiday decorations throughout the gardens, this is a must-see for locals and visitors alike.

Even if you get to the OBX late in the season, the Winter Lights Festival goes through the beginning of 2014!
