Croaker Festival 2018 THIS WEEKEND!!


The Pamlico County Croaker Festival on the Oriental, NC waterfront.

This small town celebrates big! The 38th Annual Croaker Festival, “Pamlico County’s Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration” is just down the road in Oriental.  Arlington Place is proud to once again be a GOLD sponsor of this awesome event.

This two day festival, an annual holiday tradition since 1980, kicks off Friday afternoon!  From parades and carnivals to fireworks and dancing in the street, it’s easy to see that these locals and weekend warriors know how the celebrate the Fourth of July in style.

Last year the parade theme was “Celebrating Our Fishing Heritage” and was Marshaled by local fisherman Ben and Zach Bruno of Endurance Seafood. This year we join in with the rest our community and celebrate our local camps!
