The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau staff, Dare County Tourism Board member Mark Ballog, along with a few local restauranteurs have planted the flag to promote one of the Outer Banks delicacies: softshell crabs.
Most restaurants are serving a version of a softshell crab dish during that timeframe, so why not proclaim it a weeklong event.
The visitors bureau is currently working on the webpage buildout, an interactive map of participating restaurants as well as a chance to vote for your best OBX Softshell dish from your favorite establishment.
More details for patrons will be announced soon. There is no cost for restaurants to participate, contact the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau for more information.
