Harvest HayDay at The Elizabethan Gardens

This is one of the most fun fall traditions on the Outer Banks. Stroll around The Elizabethan Gardens, which are beautiful at any time of the year. Take a hayride through the gardens, twist and turn through the hay bale maze, stuff a scarecrow, make an educational craft, get your face painted, listen to music and stories and more. And when the chilly air makes you shiver, cozy up to the bonfire while sipping on some hot apple cider. Extra points if you enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie too. This event is usually held the third weekend in October.
