The Roanoke Island Historical Association (RIHA) has announced an additional Dare Night after the June 17 show was cancelled due to dangerous weather conditions. The July 8 Dare Night will benefit the Outer Banks SPCA.

Dare Nights, sponsored by Midgett Insurance, are historically the first three Fridays in June and offer free admission to all Dare and Currituck residents. Donations to the local food pantries are required to redeem the free tickets. For the July 8 Dare Night, residents will be required to bring their local IDs as well as a minimum of one donation per household to the Outer Banks SPCA. Cash donations will be accepted as well. Suggested items to donate include peanut butter, dog treats, dog/cat toys, dry dye-free dog food (i.e. Purina One), Dawn dish soap, paper towels and dishwasher pods.

“I haven’t been here long, but I’ve been on duty every night we have had to cancel a show. I hate cancelling shows, particularly Dare County Night shows. To ameliorate this disappointment, we decided to add another Dare County Night and we found a really good cause for it to benefit. Please join us for the fourth and final (we hope) Dare County Night of 2022,” said Chuck Still, executive director of The Lost Colony.
