Mum’s the Word

Filling the streets of downtown New Bern with an amazing array of entertainment, Mumfest annually sees over 80,000 visitors enjoy beautiful fall weather while taking in the sights and sounds of a street fair. This year marks the 30th celebration, and it promises to be bigger than ever with the Corvette Racing Tour, Kutless in concert, a family fun run/walk, extreme athletics from the King BMX Stunt Show and Flippenout Trampoline show and much more awaits. Festival-goers will also find a boat show and maritime exhibit, arts and crafts displays, amusement park rides, puppet and magician shows, and a wide variety of delicious food guaranteed to satisfy anyone’s cravings. Music and More Music New Bern’s Union Point Park is the place to be at 4pm on Saturday, Oct. 9, as it transforms into a major concert venue thanks to the folks at Bigfish FM. The concert features the well-known group, Kutless, which has sold more than 1.5 million albums of popular modern Christian music. Also performing are the Sidewalk Prophets, winners of the New Artist of the Year award at the 2010 Dove Awards, and Above the Golden State with their new collection of catchy anthems. Go to Mumfest. com for tickets and information. Mumfest’s main stage will be jumpin’ with the Pickin’ and Grinnin’ Band’s blend of bluegrass, country and gospel; Conch Stew’s rendition of beach music and oldies; and last but not least, New Diamond Jubilee will be a treat for fans of rhythm and blues and gospel music. 8

Everyone’s favorite Rick Hubbard and his Kazoobie Kazoo Band will also be back this year. Audience members are given a kazoo to join the Kazoo Kazoobie band during an interactive musical show that uses the latest technology to create a rock-and-roll show that combines music with a message. Water World Mumfest may be full of fun and games – but it’s also full of ideas. Make sure you take the time to browse through the recreational boating options at the 9th annual Mumfest Boat Show. Coastal and offshore vessels will be on display in Union Point Park on Oct. 9-10, and with plenty of good boating weather still ahead of us, this is the best time of year to get a great deal on a new or used boat. “Mumfest provides an excellent venue for the show because of the large selection and variety of boats displayed by our vendors,” said Bud Van Slyke, coordinator. “This show makes it easy for anyone interested in purchasing a boat because it offers a one-stop boat shopping experience!” Whether you’ve been boating for years or are looking for your first boat, you’ll find displays from American Marine, The Jumping Mullet Boat Co., Portside Marina/Miramar Boats, Park Boat Co., Pledger’s Craft, LLC, Radio Island Marina, True World Marine and Tyndall Marine Service. Kidstuff and Lil’ Kidstuff The Corvette Racing Tour features the 2010 Corvette C6R ALMS show car, victory

lane photos, artifacts from Corvette’s storied racing history and a number of championship trophies. Be sure to have a digital photo taken with your favorite racecar driver! Fantastick Patrick juggles swords, fire, balls and clubs. He balances huge objects on his face, rides a 6-foot unicycle and demonstrates an amazing Chinese yo-yo routine. Fantastic Patrick performs three shows daily on the main stage. Children (and adults!) will be surprised by the Silver Drummer Girl who looks like a statue until she comes to life, the very tall Uncle Sam, magicians and other street performers such as the interactive and very popular puppet show with the Gabardine Sisters, Poly and Ester. At the amusement park, families will find a wide variety of things to do, including the merry go round, full tilt, gondola and of course, the bumper cars. The amusement park has rides for both the brave and not so brave at heart – whichever you prefer, you’ll find it here. Start out Sunday morning at 7:30am in Union Point Park with the 5K and 1-mile Family Fun Run/Walk. Call 252-639-2907 to learn more, or to register. Be sure to stop by the Sudan Temple to see the Thomas the Train layout by the Carolina Coastal Railroaders. Thomas is a cheeky, little wooden train with lots of friends and accessories that make him lovable. On a grander scale, the double track HO scale model railroad in the first floor exhibit area is a marvel of detail and technical know-how. Getting to Mumfest Be sure to visit to see a complete listing of events and to help plan your weekend. You’ll also find a map telling you where everything is located and a schedule of performances. For those who don’t wish to park downtown, free trolley shuttle service is available both days from the New Bern Mall. A water-taxi service is also available from the BridgePointe Hotel Marina.

Mumfest Entertainment

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.

Making HISTORY Tryon Palace Opens New Education Center As New Bern celebrates its 300th anniversary, the state of North Carolina is ready to show off a little history as well. The Tryon Palace Commission officially opens the NC History Center at Tryon Palace Historic Sites and Gardens on Friday, Oct. 22, with the help of state government officials and dignitaries. The official dedication of the $60.6 million project is slated for 11am at the East Entrance to the new showcase. The North Carolina History Center at Tryon Palace features the latest in interactive technology to inform, educate and engage visitors in the history of North Carolina from early settlement in 1710, through the development of statehood and into the mid-20th century. In celebration of the opening, guests will enjoy free admission to the Tryon Palace Gardens and outdoor areas, where celebratory activities will abound. Free educational

programs for children and adults are on tap, including live performances and two nights of spectacular 18th century aerial rocket fireworks. The 60,000 sq. ft. museum sits on a six-acre tract of former industrial space along the Trent River, just adjacent to Tryon Gardens, which was purchased from Barbour Boat Works in 1997 with $1 in state funds. Groundbreaking took place in June of 2008. Also contributing to the project was the city of New Bern, $1.5 million; Craven County, $1.3 million; Tryon Palace board members, $4 million; foundations, $4.8 million; and corporate funding, $2 million. The balance came from public and private donations. The new addition combines technology with history for a more complete, personalized visit. Guests with smart phones will be able to access a self-paced History Navigator Tour, putting a virtual tour guide at their fingertips, complete

with video, audio and layered information to an almost limitless archive on the site’s history and buildings. As part of the Grand Opening, a very special international exhibit is featured. The Bern New Bern Exhibition, which first opened in Bern, Switzerland, celebrates the relationship of New Bern to its Swiss mother city and pays tribute to its history from its earliest beginnings through today. Also opening is the History Center’s Regional History Museum, which explores the interrelationships of the central coastal area of North Carolina with the world, teaching how local events influenced, or were influenced by, state, national and international events. At the new Pepsi Family Center, visitors enter via a virtual time machine that takes them to the year 1835, where they assume roles from that time period. Guests work as teams, loading and sailing a virtual ship, distilling turpentine or piecing together an electronic quilt. The evening of Oct. 21, guests at a black-tie Grand Opening Gala Celebration will enjoy food, drink, roving period entertainers and historic characters in Mattocks Hall and outdoors on Bate Commons, overlooking the river walk on the Trent River. The gala evening includes the opening exhibits. Reservations are required in advance as attendance is limited. For information and to make reservations, visit or call 252-514-4933. Opening weekend visitors will also be among the first to enjoy the greatly expanded Museum Store, with a host of new items, and Lawson’s Landing Riverwalk Café, from which they may stroll the boardwalks off Bate Commons and explore the natural wetlands along the Trent River. Tryon Palace is owned by the state of North Carolina and is administered under the Office of Archives & History. The site welcomes approximately 100,000 visitors a year.

Spiced & Diced

Looking to add a little spice to your life? Hoping to heat things up in October? Then maybe it’s time you grabbed a spoon and headed down to the 29th annual Havelock Chili Festival. Following a year that saw attendance estimates reach 25,000 over the two day period, this year’s festival, held Oct. 15-16, hopes to match those numbers once again with a full schedule of music, big trucks, a drive-through window and of course, lots and lots of chili. “Last year was phenomenal,” said Havelock Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Stephanie Duncan. “This year I see it on track for being bigger. I already have 10 cooks and they’re all from out of town. I would expect to double that, if not triple, by the way of enthusiasm we’ve had this year. I have cooks from Raleigh, Rochester, NY, and Harrisburg, Pa.” This trend isn’t uncommon for Havelock’s most heated event, which saw one of the 2009 winners roll into town from Colorado for a chance to taste victory. In fact, as North Carolina’s only chili contest sanctioned by the International Chili Society (ICS), this is the only chance all year for chefs to represent the state during the ICS 22

New Bern Magazine

World Championships in 2011. The Havelock Chili Festival has been sanctioned by the ICS to hold competitions for red chili, green chili and salsa (see additional rules on page 28), however, festival visitors can enjoy additional menu items from the event’s vendors, vote in the people’s choice contest for red chili and salsa or judge Friday night’s popular chicken wing cooking contest. “The green chili (contest) is on Friday night but the biggest draw other than the concert is the chicken wings,” added Duncan. “We provide wings for the cooks and they cook them all up in different ways. They put them on the grill or deep fry them or whatever they want to do and the winner is determined by people’s choice.”

(cont. from page 22) Despite entertainment from local musicians like Cold Biscuit (see page 26), vendors, rides for children and the Big Boy Toy Show, food is still the biggest draw for the Havelock Chili Festival. In fact, so many folks come out for the food that organizers are promoting a drive-through window at Havelock City Hall where people can pick up an order of chili without ever stepping onto festival grounds. “Last year we ran out of chili before 1 o’clock,” said Duncan. “We saw there was a need to be bigger and better, so we’ve partnered with area businesses to have some extra chili on hand this year.” One of the most surprising aspects of this competition is the difference between chili cooked in the ICS competition, and chili served up to win the people’s choice award. People in the South love their chili with everything from beans to pasta, however, the ICS says competition chili can include neither – just a basic recipe of meat and chilies. Other highlights on tap include a performance from the Havelock

Community Band on Saturday and students from local dance studios, demonstrations from the military working dogs, Civil War reenactors, a special visit from the USMC rescue helicopter Pedro and the Big Boy Toy Show. “The city brings a fire truck and trash hauler, so the kids can see how they work,” said Duncan. “Crash and rescue brings things from the base and vendors bring in things like Cadillacs and Dick Parker brings his cars from (Dick Parker Ford).” This year’s in-kind sponsors for the Havelock Chili Festival include Crabby Patty’s, Osprey Construction, Tun Tavern, city of Havelock and the Havelock Chamber of Commerce. Donations from the event will go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Coastal Carolina, CravenCherry Point Child Development Center, Sisters on the Move, Girl Scouts Rainbow Service Unit, Craven Community College Scholarship Foundation and the Havelock Chamber of Commerce.

Bite into a Cold Biscuit Bringing its eclectic mix of popular music to Havelock, New Bern-based Cold Biscuit takes the stage both Friday and Saturday much to the delight of Chili Fest guests. Performances are planned from 5-9pm on Friday and 12:30-3:30pm on Saturday at City Park. The band formed five years ago, explained bassist Dana Outlaw, with the hopes of crossing genres and bringing a hodgepodge of musical tastes together. “Several of us had bands that were either blues bands or beach bands or bluegrass bands – but what we really wanted to do was a format that included all of that,” he said. “We do also do some gospel, we do some blues – something for just about every taste.” From old church hymns to the Eagles and Bob Segar to the Temptations, Cold Biscuit covers just about all the bases. With five regular band members, the band also has a supporting cast of “irregulars” who jump in to provide musical accompaniment on certain numbers. Several of the members, he said, originally attended church together where they participated in musical events. It wasn’t long, however, before the musicians joined forces and decided to explore their love for music in a more secular way. Once in action, the band was quickly taking requests and searching for a memorable band name. Guitar player Dennis Albertson gets the credit, said Outlaw of the name that has served them well. Everybody remembers a cold biscuit. “Five years is a good bit of time when it comes to bands,” said Outlaw. 26 26

New Bern Bern Magazine Magazine New

“Bands are constantly evolving and changing and we’re pretty much the same. You know what you’re going to get. Some of us have been playing together for 7 or 8 years so we’ve definitely passed the litmus test for playing together. “It’s been a lot of fun,” said Outlaw. “We have a good time together. We play a lot of civic events like the Chili Festival or the Fireman’s Museum fundraiser – events where a good mix of music works best. We like to play in places where people are having fun without having to play around a lot of smoke and stuff,” he added with a laugh. The only smoke at the Havelock Chili Festival should be coming from the mouths of those tasting the spicier offerings in the crowd.

A Peppering of History As the Havelock Chili Festival approaches its 29th anniversary with a full schedule of entertainment, vendors and cooking contests ranging from red and green chili to salsa and chicken wings, perhaps it’s time to take a look back at how things have changed through the years.

1,000 wings provided by competitors sold out within the first hour and an additional 3,600 wings were sold out by 8 pm. 2008 – A Chili Verde – or green chili – contest was added to the Friday night venue. This additional competition has been requested by contestants for years. A total of 7,000 wings were purchased for this year’s event.

1981 – The festival was the vision of then Commanding Gen. Richard Kuci. Chili was selected as the focus because many of the Havelock/Cherry Point families were from the southeastern region where chili is popular and because many of the Marines spent training time in El Toro, Calif.

2006 – Added the Big Boy Toy Show to the festivities. The Public Services Department has faithfully brought heavy equipment on site for children to explore.

Exploring Nestled on Hwy 70 between Morehead City and New Bern, Havelock is best known as the home to 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 throughout the day, 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 from the 1858 joining of the Atlantic and North Carolina railroads. A depot was built at the crossing and named for accomplished British General Henry Havelock, who had gained popularity at the time for rescuing hostages during a bloody uprising in India. In addition to this community adopting Havelock as its moniker, seven other cities in the world share the general’s namesake. Apart from being a railroad depot, Havelock distinguished itself by being a popular hunting and fishing destination in the late 1800s and on through the early 1930s. Even baseball legends Babe Ruth and Christie Mathewson came down to hunt and visit. Photo albums still exist with pictures of these two greats in hunting gear, posing with locals. The 1940s and World War II brought with them MCAS Cherry Point. Havelock’s

population exploded and with it came economic prosperity for local businesses. Before the MCAS was established, the community housed a modest population of 100 or less. Now, approximately 2 2 , 5 0 0 p e o p l e call Havelock home. Since then, Havelock has enjoyed a strong relationship with Cherry Point and those who serve on the base, which is one of the largest employers of both Craven and neighboring Carteret County. Havelock enjoys visitors year round due to annual events like the NC Chili Festival in the fall and the MCAS Cherry Point Air Show held each June, along with natural attractions such as the Croatan National Forest and the Neuse River.

Exploring The Lore and Lure of Oriental In a place where boats outnumber its residents nearly three to one, the town of Oriental is a sailor’s refuge perched along the Neuse River. Before “orienting” itself to a new name in 1899, Oriental was known as Smith’s Creek. The original name lacked pizzazz for citizens, so a new name was coined by the wife of Oriental’s founder and first postmaster, Lou Midyette.

Midyette’s wife saw the name on the transom name board of a Union Steamship that sank 33 miles north of Hatteras, near Bodie Island, in 1862. The name board washed ashore and was displayed a few years later at a residence in Manteo she happened to be visiting. Boats are not just a part of Oriental’s history. Labeled the sailing capital of North Carolina, it’s common to find residents and visitors kayaking, fishing and sailing year round. Nearly 5,000- 6,000 sailors come in to port each year from the Intracoastal Waterway, with the Oriental Cup Regatta in September or the Neuse River Solo Race in October being among the biggest draws. The town boasts a plethora of activities on the water, a wealth of award-winning artisans, an active musical society, a theater group and a thriving community spirit. Find out more about the waterfront town at the Oriental History Museum at 802 Broad St. in Village Square. The museum features items of interest for all ages and is currently open Friday, 11am-3pm, Saturday, noon–4pm and Sunday, 1-4pm. The year-round ferry, which carries 30 cars, docks at Minnesott Beach, which is just a 10-mile scenic drive to Oriental. For confirmation or additional information, call 1-800-BY-FERRY or visit 32
