Are you planning on vacationing with us at Loggerhead Inn in October? Then you won’t want to miss the 30th Annual Autumn with Topsail. The event is held by the Historical Society of Topsail Island and Pender County Tourism, this is one you want to be at. After Hurricane Florence came through the area 2 weeks ago, we weren’t sure if this event was going to happen. Good news for everyone because Autumn with Topsail will be held this year!
Saturday, October 20th
On Saturday, October 20th at 9:30 am, the Arts & Crafts booths will open up. If you want to get a head start on purchasing Christmas gifts, this is the way to do it. Take home some beautiful artwork for either your home or as a gift. At 11:00 a.m., the Food Court, Beer & Wine Garden and Children’s Activities on the grounds will begin. Please note that anything that was originally supposed to be in the Assembly building will not happen. There was a lot of damage to the building and it won’t be fixed in time for the festival this year. Starting at noon, it’s time to get your dancing shoes on or just sit and listen to “The Carolina Band” play until 3 pm. And if you miss them, then you can always come and listen to “North Tower Band” play from 5 pm to 8:00 pm.

If you think that only the adults will have fun at this event, think again. The children’s fun activities are just what every kid is wanting this year. You’re children can have their face painted or they can have their hair spray painted (don’t worry it comes out). They can decorate visors, doorknob hangers, make colorful sand art and more. What kid wouldn’t want to enjoy all this fun for the weekend?
