The Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station is hosting its annual wave of festivities during Thanksgiving week, and the historic Rodanthe site has several events for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
Scheduled events during Thanksgiving week at the Life-Saving Station include the following:
On Tuesday, November 22, at 2:00 p.m., visitors will have an opportunity to go back in time to the Life-Saving Station’s early 20th-century operations by watching the Beach Apparatus Drill.
Performed by local volunteers in period-accurate uniforms, the event is a live display that honors the heroes who practiced this drill every Thursday at 4 bells, (or 2:00 p.m.), when the original stations were still in commission. The event is free with the price of admission.
On Friday, November 25, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., visitors can enjoy a meet and greet with Santa Claus himself, who will be making a special early holiday appearance at the Life-Saving Station the day after Thanksgiving. Juice, cider, and cookies will be served, and the admission price is a donation to the local Elvin Hooper Scholarship Fund.
