New Bern’s riverside city is revving up for its annual award-winning fall festival – MumFest. This event is two days of family fun, attracting an average of about 80,000 festival goers to the beautifully restored, historic downtown waterfront, and the festival was named a Top 20 Event in the Southeastern US by the Southeastern Tourism Society. Visitors find music, dancing, shopping, live music and food throughout the festival weekend. This year, MumFest features the 228-foot mega yacht SeaFair with galleries filled with fine art, jewelry and sculpture from artists around the world. This is the world’s first mobile mega yacht and one of the 10 largest privately owned yachts in the US. The yacht will remain docked at the Hilton Marina for MumFest weekend, arriving Oct. 10. Tickets for the weekend are $15 at the door for a one-day pass and $20 for a priority multiple-day ticket.

New Bern Magazine

There are many more events to keep everyone entertained through the weekend. Thrill seekers will love the King BMX stunt show, dog enthusiasts can enjoy the Incredible Purina Dog Team, race car fans will enjoy checking out the Detroit Chevrolet Grand Prix of Belle Isle Indy Show Car and the popular boat show expands this year with a new recreation venue, Outdoor Life. This new venue has exhibits including bicycling, camping, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, running, sailing and stand-up paddle boarding. Other festival favorites include live bands, roving street performers, dancers, choral groups, KIDSTUFF and Lil’ Kidstuff, amusement rides, magicians, clowns, the Gabardine sisters, a model train show, Weller Kennels retriever trials, NBPD K-9s, face painting and the Art Zone will have plein air artists working on Pollock Street by the Pumpkin Patch at Christ Church. With more than 300 commercial and nonprofit exhibitors and other vendors, there really is something for everyone to enjoy. Live music is a major part of MumFest, and this year music lovers have every reason to be excited. The downtown stage, next to the Galley Store, grooves all weekend long with several different bands playing everyone’s favorite songs. The band 3 Day Weekend brings all the sounds of the classic and Southern rock era,

influenced by bands like The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The five member band The Shake Doctors, led by front man Clay Kirschner, has a play list that includes hits from Billy Idol to Chairman of the Board and everything in between. Tee Jay Jones and the Pamlico Sound Machine is equipped with a broad repertoire that covers music from Soul to Beach to Jazz. “We reach into the heart of each piece of music and bring out its soul,” said Jones. Tom & Dahlin’ have been entertaining audiences for years. They perform regularly at a local restaurant, at weddings, parties and special events. The Achordants formed at UNC-Chapel Hill in 2001 with a mission to entertain and promote their message of diversity through music. Using tight harmonies and a lighthearted appeal of the group’s diverse repertoire, ranging from gospel to Scottish folk songs, is a reflection of the group members’ individuality as an a capella group. Pauline Smith and Don Blalock sing a mixture of classic country music made famous by legends like Loretta Lynn and Johnny and June Cash. On Saturday night, MumFesters stroll across the Trent River Bridge to enjoy a magical evening under the stars at the 2nd annual YPG River Jam concert from 5-11pm. The concert takes place on the lawn behind the BridgePointe Hotel and Marina; blanket and chairs are welcome. Billy Holton and the Soul Shakers and The Band of Oz will get the party going before The Switch takes the stage to rock out the rest of the evening. To purchase tickets go to

ARTS Film Noir Series Announced

The Old Theater in Oriental announces a new film series with four classic detective films playing Sunday nights in October. The wellknown film noir examples revolve around private eye characters with tough-guy attitudes. The films include John Huston’s “The Maltese Falcon,” Howard Hawks’ “The Big Sleep,” Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” and Roman Polanski’s “Chinatown.” Sight and Sound, an international film magazine recently polled 846 film critics, programmers, academics and distributors who chose Hitchcock’s film “Vertigo” as the top film of all time. This is a major achievement, beating out Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” for the first time.

dramas, especially those steeped in the greedy, violent, misogynistic and criminal perspectives of the anti-heroic.

Chuck Brodsky Performs

The Down East Folk Art Society brings Chuck Brodsky to the Trent River Coffee Company on Friday, Oct. 19. It has been said that if Mark Twain was a folksinger, his name could be Chuck Brodsky. This down to earth musical storyteller, with dry, barb-witted social commentary combined with a deep underlying compassion, knows that the best stories are the little things in the lives of everyday people trying to muddle through each day with some grace. His great gift as a writer is to infuse these stories with humanity and humor, making them resonate profoundly with listeners. His spoken introductions to his songs can be as

spellbinding as his colorful lyrics, which he brings to life with a well-travelled voice and a delivery that is both natural and conversational. His groove-oriented strumming and finger picking draw on influences from the mountains of western North Carolina, where he now lives, among other traditional folk subjects. Brodskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songwriting inspiration comes from places like the evening news, his family heritage and stories he has gathered on the road. He brings sharp political commentary that is direct and on-point, reminiscent of songs that have opened the eyes of others for 40 years. Brodsky has toured extensively throughout the US, Canada and Ireland for more than 18 years, playing at folk festivals in Denmark, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Kerrville, Philadelphia, California, New (cont. on page 11)

In a place where boats outnumber its residents nearly three to one, the town of Oriental is a sailor’s refuge tucked away along the Neuse River, which oddly enough, earned its named from a Union Steamship that sank 33 miles north of Hatteras, near Bodie Island. The wife of Oriental’s founder and first postmaster, Lou Midyette, is said to have seen the transom of the vessel displayed years later at a home in Manteo and found it to be the ideal name for their little waterside hamlet. Boats are not just a part of Oriental’s history, they define it. Labeled the sailing capital of North Carolina, it’s common to find residents and visitors kayaking, fishing and sailing year round. Nearly 5-6,000 sailors come in to port each year from the Intracoastal Waterway, many for the collection of regattas held throughout the year. The town boasts a plethora of activities, a wealth of awardwinning artisans, an active music scene, a theater group and a thriving community spirit. The year-round ferry, which carries 30 cars, docks at Minnesott Beach, just 10 miles from Oriental, making it accessible to points east and west.

Nestled along Hwy 70 between Morehead City and New Bern, Havelock is best known as the home of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, now the largest air station in the world. From its landmark Harrier plane propped up halfway through town to the thundering sounds of passing jets, there is no mistaking the presence and effect the air station has on Havelock’s visitors and residents. A small community started in the mid-1800s, Havelock grew, in part, because of the union between Atlantic and North Carolina railroads. A depot was built at the crossing and named after British Gen. Henry Havelock. The 1940s and World War II brought with them MCAS Cherry Point and Havelock’s population exploded, from about 100 to approximately 22,500 people. Havelock enjoys visitors year round, with annual events like its NC Chili Festival and the Cherry Point Air Show, held each year in June, and natural attractions such as the Croatan National Forest and Neuse River.

Exploring Tucked away on the banks of the Neuse River, the city of New Bern offers the comforts of a modern riverside city with a historic tradition that dates back to Colonial times. In 1710, Swiss baron Christopher de Graffenried founded New Bern as the second-oldest town in North Carolina, naming the city after Bern, the Swiss capital. The bear proudly displayed throughout the city comes from the Swiss city’s name, taken from the German word “bären” or “bears.” While providing shopping and dining experiences on par with other major cities, New Bern maintains the spirit and feel of a small town. Visitors can explore 150 historic landmarks, many of which date back to the 18th century. The revitalized historic district offers visitors a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and historic homes. Tryon Palace is one of New Bern’s most popular historic sites. Completed in 1770, Tryon Palace was built by British Governor William Tryon and served as the capital building in the later 1700s when New Bern was North Carolina’s capital.

Tryon Palace hosted many famous people, including George Washington. New Bern is also famed for a late 1800s pharmacist named Caleb Bradham. Bradham mixed syrup of coca, kola nut extracts and rare oils with carbonated water to create the fizzy beverage known today as Pepsi Cola.

ARTS (cont. from page 11) Malone, Jr.,” starring Jodie Foster and Scott Baio, the comedy is set in 1920s Chicago as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to gangster flicks. Alan Parker wrote the script, and the lyrics and music were written by Paul Williams, who also wrote the music for “The Muppet Movie.” Characters with names like Dandy Dan, Blousey Brown, Fat Sam, Fizzy, Oscar De Velt, Tallulah and Lena Marelli will sing and dance their way into the hearts of audiences. The story revolves around a non-violent gang war fought with “splurge blasters” which spray forth silly string. Fat Sam runs one of the most popular clubs in town and is in danger of being closed down by his business rival, Dandy Dan. Along comes Bugsy Malone, a lady’s man and a definite asset to Fat Sam, until Bugsy caught the eye of Sam’s girlfriend Tallulah, even though he had set his design on showgirl Blousey Brown. Originally written for children, “Bugsy Malone, Jr.” explores the roaring 20s decade, Prohibition and the Great Depression, as well as entertain with the catchy, swinging score.

Painting Workshop with Dan Nelson

Carolina Creations in New Bern is sponsoring a three-day workshop, “Unlocking the Six Secrets of Great Landscape Painting in New Bern,” with Dan Nelson of Raleigh from 9am4:30pm daily, Oct. 25-27. The workshop is held at the Francoeur’s art studio in New Bern. Participants may work in oils or acrylics, and the workshop is open to all skill levels. The concentration for the workshop is on how to construct a captivating landscape portrait. The secrets and insights Nelson shares are very important to creating landscapes, but so is their order. Students will learn the step-bystep thought process that results in beautiful landscape paintings including focused light, intentional composition, rich texture, inviting perspective, balanced color and believable objects. This is not a medium-specific class, but Nelson is going to paint with acrylics for the under-painting and oils on the top layer. Nelson’s acrylics are available for use if participants don’t want to bring their own. Oils do not have to be used, and the paintings may be completely created with acrylics if desired. Nelson has been an artist since an early age. As an adult, he worked in commercial art and fine art, dealing with nearly every conceivable medium. Well known for painting very large murals at festivals, he is also a gifted speaker and instructor. He not only teaches the “how” of painting, he also teaches the “why.” Nelson demonstrates and students paint each day. For more information, or to sign up for the workshop, visit or email

Ghosts share stories of their mortal existence at 20 sites in downtown New Bern, including Cedar Grove Cemetery, Miss Gertrude Caraway’s house, two historic theaters and many other homes, churches and businesses. Participants listen to tales of Civil War soldiers while wandering through soldier encampments on the banks of the Neuse River. Be sure to take the children to Agony Alley, where kids of all ages are entertained with thrills and games in a kid-friendly haunted house. Ghostwalk tickets for adults are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
