When beer kegs fly it will be BrewTag on the outer banks. Postponed from its original September 26 because of rain, the Kitty Hawk Kites sponsored event is back on track for Saturday, October 24.
The concept is simple: take a 1/6 keg—empty—attach wings to it and see how far it will fly. Held at the outer banks Event Site in Nags Head, there's plenty of room for flight and we expect aeronautical engineers from all walks of life to try their hand at design.
The fun kicks off at noon and festivities will run until 6:00 p.m. live music is on tap, as well as—on tap. Like any kitty hawk kites event, it is family friendly with the Kidzone crew on hand to make sure faces are painted and kids have a great time.
Proceeds benefit the Rogallo Foundation.
brewtag is not the only upcoming event at the Nags Head site. This coming Saturday—October 17, look for the 4th Annual Outer Banks Seafood Festival.
For 100s of years—maybe longer if we include the time of the Native Americans—the people who lived on the Outer Banks took their sustenance from the sea. The Seafood Festival celebrates that heritage with fresh local seafood prepared by local chefs and restaurants. The food is great, there's plenty to drink, live music and lots to do.
With cooking demonstrations and talks about the history and culture of the Outer Banks the day truly does become a celebration of local history, culture and cuisine.
This is one the most popular festivals on the Outer Banks; maybe the most popular. There is no parking at the site. For information about where to park, check out the Outer Banks Seafood Festival website.
