Day at the Docks was started to celebrate the "Spirit of Hatteras" when the village recovered from Hurricane Isabel in 2003 as an intact community, anchored by the commercial and charter fishermen.  The day long event is a confirmation of the strength of community, heritage and living traditions of the waterman.
