summer fun heats up at roanoke island festival park
There’s something for everybody at Roanoke Island Festival Park this summer. It’s a great place to visit with its beautiful open space overlooking the Roanoke Sound. With the Elizabeth II replica of the ship that brought the Lost Colony to the New World, any Indian town and a settlement site, the park becomes fun place to learn about he history of the area.
And, just about every day there’s a show for kids and adults. The Brew Thru Summer Concert Series is bringing in some top name groups and four shows are on tap for this summer. The biggest one is probably Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers coming to town next Thursday. The Pat McGee Band will also be preforming with his, making this a must see show.
They’re all evening shows at the Outdoor Pavilion, which is an absolutely beautiful setting for a live performance.
There is also a full line-up of kids shows this summer at Festival Park.
Hansel and Gretel is just wrapping up, but almost every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday through July, the Indoor Theater becomes the home of children’s fairy tales.
Three Little Pigs, Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Frog Prince, is coming up next week followed by You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown—which will run Tuesday-Thursday to avoid July 4th, the The Little Prince July 16-18 and wrapping up with Don Quixote July 22-25.
Curtain goes up on the kids’ shows at 10:30 a.m.
