Fall in Lake Norman brings with it brightly colored trees along the shoreline, crystal clear “Carolina Blue” skies and an array of festivals, activities and even volunteer opportunities.
Our Denver Days fall festival is back for its seventh year starting Wednesday, September 29th – Saturday, October 2nd 2010. Created as a fundraising effort to raise money for the East Lincoln Rescue Park in Denver NC (Southwest corner of Lake Norman), they are still about 3 years away from being able to build this park. So, come out and have a great time all the while supporting the community. Denver Days offers carnival rides, great food, live music, entertainment, craft vendors, and even a beer garden.
Up for a little challenge? Check out Rural Hills annual The Amazing Maize Maze in Huntersville. Every year the folks at Rural hill create a wonderfully designed maze in a 7-acre section of their corn fields. You are given a map of the maze andsent off to not only find your way out of the maze but if you are dedicated, try finding all twelve map pieces along the way. Trust me, when you finally get to the “Victory Bridge” you will feel you have earned your freedom! Daily mazes run through September 26th. Then, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from October 1-November 7th 2010. They also offer Flashlight evening mazes every Friday night in October through November 5th. “Enjoy great music, great food, great fun and the great outdoors”.
