Onslow County Summer Events

Are you looking forward to summer vacation yet?  It just occurred to me that Onslow County Schools last day of school is just a few short weeks away.  June 8th will be here before we know it.

What are you planning to do with your family this summer?   Are you taking a family vacation?  I have family that uses the summer weekends to take mini vacations.  They like to go to places close enough to drive to, and plan an overnight stay. Usually to a museum or battleground type place that is equally fun and educational for the kids.

But you don’t even have to leave Onslow County to be able to spend fun, quality time with your family.  There are several events planned for the summer of 2012 right here in our back yards.

June 2nd There is the Annual Military Appreciation Day at Hammocks Beach State Park as well as Onslow County Parks & Recreation and On Shore Surf Shop will be doing paddleboard and surf lessons to beginners and intermediates on North Topsail Beach.

 June 5th The Hershey Track and Field Meet will be at White Oak High School.
