Oriental Croaker Festival

June 28 through July 1, 2018  During Croaker Festival, Oriental's population soars. Thousands of visitors arrive to honor the croaker, a very tasty and surprisingly vocal fish found only in Southern waters. (Anyone not having heard a croaker's croak needs to spend more time in boats.) The festival provides food, great children's games in a separate park, art displays with artists present, music and, of course, a parade. The Croakette and Croaker Queen pageants, a baking contest, boat races, a street dance and fireworks vie for attention and raise excitement. Nobody goes away disappointed.
