Headed down to the Crystal Coast of NC this weekend? If so, you might want to check out the Parrot Head Weekend today (Friday, August 3) through Sunday, August 5.

What would the 4th of July Emerald Isle holiday be without a fireworks display off the Bogue Inlet Pier? The great news is you can bring your whole family to see the Emerald Isle 4th of July Fireworks display for 2012! Clearly seen from the Intracoastal Waterway and Bogue Sound, this year’s fireworks will be launched from the Bogue Inlet Pier. Visitors up and down the Emerald Isle coast will be able to catch the display!
With parking a premium, you would be wise to arrive early for parking. The fun begins at 9 PM!

Here is a quick update. For everyone who has been calling me, the Emerald Isle, NC July 4, 2011 fireworks display will occur this year off the Bogue Inlet Pier at 9PM Monday night. If you’re leaving the Crystal Coast Sunday, it’s a shame as you’ll miss the sight of the fireworks being launched over the Atlantic Ocean.
Shoot and Tell!
If you happen to take any photos of the 4th of July fireworks celebration in Emerald Isle (like the one to the right that I took several years ago), be sure to email me those photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post your photos here on the Crystal Coast Blog for all to see!
Everyone have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July 2011!
