Local Fall Festivities

“Autumn, the year’s last, lovliest smile.”

~William Bryant Cullent

For many, fall is the most exciting time of the year and it is certainly full of festive activities in the beautiful Wilmington, North Carolina area!  We pulled together a few ideas to celebrate the season – and the great news?  All of these fun activities are just minutes from the gates of the new home community of Compass Pointe.

You can’t fully celebrate fall without experiencing Oktoberfest!  Ogden Tap room is the place to be!  There is something for everyone with a beer tent for the adults, bounce house for the children and even the dogs are welcome to enjoy live music and authentic German food!

If hay rides, corn mazes, train rides and pumpkins are what get you in the mood for, then Hubb’s farm is the spot to explore.  Located in Clinton, NC, Hubb’s has a proven tradition of fall fun!

The weather is perfect for enjoying all that Leland Municipal Park has to offer this season as well.   Pack a picnic or enjoy food from local food trucks at the Fall Concert Series or bring the kids to the park’s Trunk or Treat event.  Decorate a pumpkin and let the children collect candy in a safe, supervised environment!

Halyburton Park is hosting a festival of its own.  The Fire in the Pines Festival is an event designed to educate and entertain children and adults alike.  Even Smokey the Bear will make an appearance to enjoy the scavenger hunt, raffles, plant and animal exhibits, arts and crafts, food trucks, live music, an educational controlled burn and so much more.

Many area churches are hosting fall festivals as well, including The First Baptist Church of Leland and Leland Christian Academy.  With indoor and outdoor activities such as a cake walk, silent auction, crafts and trunk or treat activities, there will be something for everyone.

Beautiful Wilmington is just waiting for you to explore, so try something new this fall!  The culture of Compass Pointe is centered around resort-style living…every day!  With wonderful North Carolina weather, an ideal location for retirement, amazing amenities and tons of friends and neighbors …what’s NOT to love about life at Compass Pointe?!
