Family Fun Revisited
These first few finds are places I’ve had the blessing to visit before whether as a Blogger or with my family. They were a blast the first time around and I already know they are places I can’t wait to revisit this year.

Hallowe’en Reveals Night Tours In The Poe House – Details HereWednesday, October 16th at 6pm – Friday, October 28th at 6pm“If you have attended Hallowe’en Revels in the past, this year’s event will be very different. In addition to once again working with actors from the Gilbert Theatre, we are mixing things up to coincide with the museum’s current special exhibit, Parlor to Parlor: Funeral Traditions of the Cape Fear 1850-1950, which runs through December 31. The house will be dressed in mourning for the month of October, so the night tours this year will include a realistic coffin set up as part of a funeral scene in the parlor. Visitors will be guided through a timeline of scenes from the life of Dixie Poe Sutton, culminating in her untimely death from childbirth complications in 1913.” —Museum of the Cape Fear

Cape Fear Garden
“Inspired by nature and built by artist Sean Kenney with over 500,000 colorful LEGO® bricks, the exhibit will feature larger-than-life sculptures representing the complex and amazing network that interconnects all living things on Earth. The sculptures will be displayed throughout the Garden to encourage you to walk by an 8-foot tall hummingbird, go nose-to-nose with a 5-foot bumblebee, admire a 7-foot rose, and watch an oversized koi leap about in the Cypress Pond. Interpretative panels for each display with feature a message to connect children with the natural world and promote environmental stewardship and conservation. Adding to the exhibit will be activities for all ages, hands-on building stations, and design competitions.” —Cape Fear Botanical Garden
