300th anniversary of Port Bath celebrated


BATH, N.C. (WNCT) – Hundreds gathered in a small eastern North Carolina town Saturday to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Port Bath.

Dozens of vendors braved the heat to show off their talent.

There were living history interpreters showing off old time skills like how people were helped when injured, blacksmithing  and beer brewing. Even some of the old colonial homes were opened up for tours.

Colonial Brewmaster Chris Umfleet said, “There’s all kinds of opportunities in North Carolina, between the state parks and historic sites, and even private institutions, of getting there, getting your hands dirty and realizing what life was like at a different time.”

If you missed the event in Bath during the day, you can stop by tonight for a free concert and fireworks beginning at 6:30.
