Halloween Ghost Ship

October 25, 2014img_7203

1 - 3 pm

Mariners of all ages will enjoy tales of lost souls, pirates, and other mysteries along the Lower Cape Fear at the NC Maritime Museum at Southport. Get into the spirit as you design and create trick or treat bags, send secret messages through ghost writing, and sit on a pine coffin to have your silhouette immortalized during shadow drawing. Enjoy hauntingly good refreshments with the other goblins and ghouls and perhaps even a ghost of Brunswick's past!

Appropriate for all ages; $3.00/person. Call the Museum at (910)457-0003 to register. 204 E. Moore St. Southport, NC 28461

A Victorian Holiday

1 – 3 p.m.

The crackling of the fireplace and the smell of pine on the hearth can only mean one thing - it is yule time! Join the NC Maritime Museum at Southport for its popular program, "Victorian Holiday." Whether you are 9 or 90 years old, making unconventional holiday decorations is fun. Learn about the Victorian period when a young German prince unknowingly started a tradition and brought the Christmas tree into vogue.

Berlin meets Brunswick, as we add a little Southern charm to our program with pine cone decorating. Whether making spiders for good luck, or giving your birds a winter present for the yard, the fun will continue while enjoying eggnog and cookies. Appropriate for all ages; $3.00/person. Call the Museum at (910)457-0003 to register. 204 E. Moore St. Southport, NC 28461.
