Trick or treaters can search for ravens in the Poe House, listen to a Halloween story, and then play old fashioned games in the backyard for a prize. 

  • Sandbox Band: Thanks to a grant from the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County we are excited to announce that Sandbox Band will be performing throughout the day!! Sandbox is a five-piece kids’ and family music band from Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, NC. "We play rockin’, rootsy music for children of all ages, songs that moms and dads will enjoy as much as the kids! Our live shows mix timeless traditional songs (with our own twist) and our own original kids’ music: Sandbox songs about food, dreams, family, and friendship."
  • Joy the Clown: Magic and Balloon Twisting by Joy the Clown will take place throughout the day.
