Fall is upon us once again! With that marks several annual occasions that most everyone looks forward to. It is a time of harvest, a time of change and a time of celebration. We are able to enjoy the harvest season and outwardly show appreciation through Thanksgiving.

Halloween and Fall Festivals mark a changing of the season and recognition of the coming fall. This year, the downtown businesses in conjunction with the City of Newbern are putting together a Trunk or Treat Fall Celebration in downtown Newbern on Halloween Night, October 31 st. This will provide as opportunity to showcase the many established and new businesses throughout the city as well as provide a safe environment for our children to trick or treat. We are asking individuals and local civic organizations as well if they would like to set up downtown to feel free to do so. Staging will be done up until 5:15pm after which point access will be blocked.

We are looking to try to make this an annual event and the initial turnout will go a long way to making sure this new and exciting festival carries on.
