FALL = HAYRIDES AND OYSTERS

Even in ‘the olden days’ when I was young, a favorite fall activity was going on a hayride. Back then we sang songs together, our voices ringing on the crisp fall air, as we huddled together for warmth in the hay telling stories and jokes. In Boiling Spring Lakes, NC, on Saturday, October 21, you can enjoy a very special kind of hayride – a Haunted Hayride. What fun! This annual event is different every year, so if you attended before, prepare to be scared out of your wits again.

Also this weekend, you have two days (Saturday and Sunday) to head out to Ocean Isle Beach, NC and enjoy everything oysters at the North Carolina Oyster Festival. With music, dancing, eating, shucking, crafts, oyster stew, and so much more, you are sure to find something(s) to make your day memorable.

There will be something special happening in the northern part of the Brunswick County, NC that will be of interest to history buffs and kids who enjoy learning at reenactments. Port Brunswick Days will be held at the Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site in Winnabow, NC. From 10 AM until 4 PM on both Saturday and Sunday, living historians will wear 18th century clothes and demonstrate how life was lived during those times. You, too, can take part in activities such as candle dipping, militia drilling, sitting in the stocks and other experiences that will take you back to that previous time.

PUMPKINS N HAY N OYSTERS, OH MY!

Ahhhhhhhhhh. Fall has arrived to Brunswick County, NC. Sunny days, cool breezes, open window nights with the sounds of crickets and night birds, glorious sunrises and sunsets, sparkling ocean waters, sandy beaches for walking, family oriented festivals Рwe have the best of it all. The upcoming weekend promises to be beautiful and is filled with outdoor events for adults and families. What adult among us does not recall the fun of fall hayrides? You can relive them this weekend Рand in Boiling Spring Lakes, NC, you can experience a hayride with a twist:  Boiling Spring Lakes Haunted Hayride

Fall and oysters go together like – well – fall and oysters. Add to that a festival and you couldn’t ask for anything better – ¬†especially when it is happening in Ocean Isle Beach, NC and includes an oyster shucking contest and a road race.
