Town of Manteo announces 2023 Fourth of July celebration

The 2023 Town of Manteo Fourth of July celebration is right around the corner and there’s plenty of festivities to engage in this year as the Town formally announces the full itinerary to celebrate the stars and stripes.

The fun begins at 3 p.m. downtown in front of the Dare Arts building (old courthouse) with the singing of the National Anthem by the beloved Manteo native Tshombe Selby, a tenor with the Metropolitan Opera.

Kid’s games and activities, decorated bike contest and parade (with trikes, scooters, and wagons welcomed as well), Where’s Waldo activity courtesy of Downtown Books, an apple pie contest, watermelon eating contest, food, and summer treats are more than enough reason to come on out and spend time with family, friends, and neighbors.

This year, an Independence Day concert will be held at Roanoke Island Festival Park at their scenic waterfront Pavilion. The concert is free and open to the public. The musical event kicks off with the Appalachian Road Show followed by Whiskey Rebellion.

The concert will concludes with fireworks at dusk provided by the Town of Manteo, complete with lots of twinkle and sparkle illuminating the night sky with vibrant colors and explosive entertainment.
