Abstract:
Every fall thousands of migratory birds winter in the eastern part of the state, attracting bird watchers from as far away as Canada, California, and Texas. The Wings Over Water Festival, held in Manteo in November, brings bird watchers together with the local community. Field trips to the Outer Banks, Lake Mattamuskeet, and Alligator River provide good opportunities for wildlife viewing. Other activities include exhibits, a photography contest, and kayaking lessons.

Abstract:
The year of 1984 marks the 400th year since a small English exploratory mission sent by Sir Walter Raleigh landed on the Outer Banks, as well as the arrival of the Lost Colony and birth of Virginia Dare. The anniversary celebration will begin in July with a flotilla of boats at Manteo, led by one of America’s best-loved sailors, Walter Cronkite. The parade of boats will sail from Elizabeth City, down the Pasquotank River, through the Albemarle Sound to Roanoke Island.
