September is a welcome breather from the hot weather, as the nights begin to cool. However, the fun continues to heat up! Here are three things to do to amp up your enjoyment.

A Taste of Fun

MumFeast in New Bern, NC.

Two-legged and four-legged friends are invited to MumFeast.

What began as a way to enjoy New Bern’s signature event, MumFest, during the pandemic, has become a date on the calendar to not miss. MumFeast is back for the fourth year, and it is set to be bigger and better than ever! From 6 to 11 p.m. on Friday, September 29, Downtown New Bern is taken over with “Feasting in the Streets.” Be sure to make reservations early, as this is a jam-packed dining experience. MumFeast also kicks off a month of mum fun, with Mumfest and the Mumfest Concert in October.

A Play of Fun

Gather your girlfriends for a fun night out at the New Bern Civic Theatre. The Revolutionists is a story of four strong women who lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. A playwright, an assassin, a Haitian rebel and Marie Antoinette hang out, commit murder and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This hilarious comedy is about a variety of emotions, plethora of “isms” and the bond of sisterhood. It is raucous fun and sure to be a memorable time for your tribe! Performances run the weekends of September 22 and 29. For tickets, click here.

A Trail of Fun

The second annual Trail to Tryon is set for Saturday, November 11, so it is time to lace up those sneakers and start training! Weyerhaeuser is once again the presenting sponsor of this 5k, 10k and half-marathon event. The races run through the streets of Downtown New Bern and along the scenic riverfront. Afterward, the post-race celebration will be filled with food trucks, vendors, music and medal presentations. Whether you participate in the race or cheer someone on, you and the entire family will enjoy a Veterans Day to remember! To sign up, click here.
