“There is magic in the night when pumpkins glow by candlelight.”
When almost every porch sports a pumpkin display, a pot of bright, colorful mums and maybe a little bale of hay, it can only mean one thing: it’s time for fall festivals, Halloween and trick-or-treating! I’ve tried to find all of the wonderful events in our area that celebrate this “spooky” time of year, for young and old alike!
Listed below is our Halloween guide to fun things to do in the Topsail Island area, in Onslow and Pender counties. If I’ve left out an event you’re aware of, please add it in the comment section at the end of the blog. Thanks! Oh…and boo to you too!
