Oriental, NC – May 30- June 1, 2014
Welcome Sunfish sailors, friends and families to our home town, Oriental, NC.
If this is your first visit, you will probably be back again. Just ask anyone in town how they ended up in Oriental and the answer will be similar to “we came in by boat and loved the town”, “I was sailing in a regatta with a friend” or “ I was looking for a boat and kept coming back”. If you need to find anything while you are visiting, just ask anybody in town or stop by the shop and we will try to help.
The weather forecast for the wide Neuse River is looking good for Saturday and Sunday’s races.
Join Sue at the tent on the lawn on Saturday to see her unique and creative wreaths. If you have seen our 1906 building decorated for Christmas or noticed one of the wreaths in our shop, you have seen Sue’s handiwork.
Is your story told with one of these wreaths that feature sea shells, sail boats, wine corks and even favorite teams. Do you have a special request? Sue can help with a wreath designed just for you.
Didn’t make it to the exhibit? Stop in our shop to see some of Sue’s Wreaths or to talk about a custom wreath.
