UPDATED: Nags Head, Currituck National Night Out events postponed for rain

Rain is putting a damper on National Night Out celebrations around the Outer Banks.

The 38th Annual National Night Out in Nags Head scheduled for Tuesday night has been postponed until Oct. 5. When it does happen, there will be a bounce house, a dunking booth (yes, you read that correctly!), a seatbelt simulator and other various vendors and kids activities. The police department will also be providing food for the event.

National Night Out is still on in the Town of Manteo Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 4-7 p.m. at Cartwright Park on Bideford Street adjacent to the Keeper Richard Etheridge Statue and Pea Island Cookhouse Museum. At the very least, there will be drive-through pick up for hotdogs and goodie bags for the kids. If weather allows, there will also be games and activities for kids and families.

Due to the forecast of rain, Currituck County has moved their event to Tuesday, Aug. 10 at the YMCA parking lot in Maple.
