Oriental Croakerfest and Dragon Boat Festival Coming In July

We’re gearing up for some summer fun here at River Neuse Suites, with two fun-filled festivals.

First, on July 1st and 2nd, Oriental will hold its annual Croakerfest. This year’s theme is “Christmas Croaker” which is guaranteed to bring out some hilarious floats and costumes for the big parade. There are eats, treats, games, a parade and good music all day Saturday, a street dance and a fabulous fireworks display over the water on Saturday night.

Next is our annual Dragon Boat Festival, July 22nd and 23rd. Teams from all over will compete for fun and prizes in this fun new sport. The races take place right in front of the hotel, so bring your lawn chairs for a front row seat on our lawns. There will be food and music, fun displays and of course, some exciting racing.
