One of the quietest and least busiest months out of the year on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, there are only a few events occurring during the month of February.
Although snow is unlikely given the average temperatures in the high-40s during the shortest month of the year, this photo was from February of 2011.
Check out the handful of events listed below and let us know if you plan on attending any of them in the comment section below.
