Cape Carteret's 50th Birthday Party


Saturday June 6th was the day picked to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the incorporation of Cape Carteret.   The town with a number of supporters put together a great festival on the land along Highway 58 between Ribeye's Steak House and the Golfin Dolphin.

There were plenty of arts and crafts booths, lots of fair food, some entertainment for the kids, and music for the adults.  We saw everything from old fashioned pickup ducks for prices to hand carved decoys.  Someone was even selling flounder gigging lights.
