North Carolina is one of the best places to experience the Fall season. The changing colors and the cool breeze are all signs that Winter is on its way, but first there are a handful of events that need to take place. Halloween and Thanksgiving are some of our favorite holidays of the year, and with those holidays come some amazing family-fun activities. Here are some of the events in the Triangle that we’re most excited about.
The Home Maze & Pumpkin Patch September 19 – November 1
In Winston-Salem there is an amazing event going on at The Farm. They will have all kinds of events such as the Sorghum Maze, toddler hay maze, pumpkin patch, cow train, pumpkin chunker, parent hangout, photo cutouts, concessions, and much more. The best part is that all proceeds will go to The Children’s Home of Winston-Salem. Come hang out and bring the whole family for a day that you’ll remember all year long.
North Carolina State Fair October 15 – October 25
The State Fair is one of the best in the entire country and takes place in Raleigh. Not only does it have all the rides and carnival games that we have all come to love, but it’s also an 11 day agricultural event. This year’s theme is “Nothing Could Be Finer” so the fair is showcasing the finest of N.C. They will be celebrating everything from horse shows, livestock shows, culinary, handicraft or art competitions and it’s sure to be an amazing time.
Queen City Ghost Tour October 15 – December 31
Looking for a little bit of a scare this Fall? Well we highly recommend the Queen City Ghost Tour. They tour areas from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and today, and tell scary tales about hauntings that inhabit antebellum homes, cemeteries, hospitals and streets of Charlotte. Make sure that if you go you’re over the age of 8 and you don’t scare too easily!
Mckee Haunted Cornfield Maze October 22, 23, 29, 30, 31
Mckee has one of the best cornfield mazes in the Triangle. It’s over four miles long and is definitely worth the drive if you’re looking for a good time. The regular cornfield is open every day, but if you’re looking to try something different then you should venture over when they have the Haunted Cornfield Maze open. It’s a great time for the whole family and is sure to get your heart racing!
