It is with great regret that I announce 2016's Cypress Festival has been canceled. Each year has become increasingly difficult to secure a ride company for the event. We were notified at the last minute that our supplier for this year's rides had closed his business. After strenuously searching from New Jersey to North Carolina, we are unable to find a replacement for this year. We are currently negotiating with a growing company out of Virginia for 2017's festival.

In place of the Cypress Festival, we are having an event called Summer Kick Off on the River. The events will include food vendors and retail vendors. The event will take place on June 16 and 17, Thursday and Friday from 5 PM to 9 PM, and on June 18, Saturday from 2 PM to 9 PM . We will have bands each day and activities for children. We will also be having a barbecue competition on Saturday. More details will be forthcoming regarding this event.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause anyone, but sincerely hope you will join us for the Summer Kick Off on the River.
