Get into the spirit of Halloween by carving a pumpkin! This year, the Elizabethan Gardens is hosting A Night of 1587 Pumpkins. Because the English colonists came to Roanoke Island in 1587, the Elizabethan Gardens will attempt to light 1,587 jack-o-lanters on October 29th. Help them in reaching their number of carved pumpkins by heading there on October 27, 28, or 29. Ready-to-be-carved pumpkins are provided by the community and will be added to the path once finished!
The Outer Banks Halloween Parade of Costumes happens each year on the Sunday afternoon prior to Halloween at Aviation Park in Kill Devil Hills. The event includes trick-or-treating, photo props, costume contests, and a costume parade. The event is free and family-friendly.
