Halloween weekend is coming up and so is a whole bunch of fun events. Kids in costumes will be haunting Trunk or Treat events and/or knocking on doors and calling out, “Trick or Treat!” They will roam the streets as ghouls and goblins and witches flying on broomsticks. On Saturday afternoon you will find a host of pirates congregated in the Yacht Basin in Southport, NC, and most of them will be adults. Pirates in the streets! Pirates on the water! Pirates everywhere! They will be making ready for the Stede Bonnet Regatta. After the regatta the air will be filled with music at the Provision Company and a whole lot of dancing will be going on.
Between 10 AM and 4 PM even some of the cars at the Classic Cars Rock ‘n Roll event in Southport, NC will be dressed in costume for a spooky vehicle contest. There will be a classic car show along with more contests and dancing in the streets in the afternoon.
The North Carolina Festival by the Sea will be held in Holden Beach, NC on Saturday and Sunday. So, if you prefer to spend Saturday at the events in Southport, NC, you can always head to Holden Beach, NC on Sunday and make a weekend of it. Kicking off with a parade, this event will offer activities and fun for adults and kids alike. So, get on out of the house in this beautiful fall weather and enjoy.
