Things to do in New Bern NC this summer.

Monday, June 28th, 2010

By now everyone knows that New Bern is celebrating it’s 300th anniversary, with that said here are some of the things you can do while you are here.

Epiphany School holds their “Feast of Epiphany”

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

At 2 pm today our private school, The Epiphany celebrated a christian tradition called The Feast of Epiphany. We had candles, prayer and the 3 wise men followed by a fantastic feast of roast beef, fruit, cheese/crackers and cake.

A cool tradition is for each advisory group(1 teacher and about 12 students)  to share a cake and with in that cake there is a gold coin. Who ever finds the coin gets to keep it.

New Bern Foot Ball and Mum Fest

Monday, October 12th, 2009

What do New Bern High School Foot Ball and the Mum Festival have in common, they both happened this past weekend.

The weekend started out on Friday night with New Bern High School playing New Hanover High School. It was a great defensive game and with out New Bern’s defense it would have been disastrous. After the game, several people made comments about the offense and that they did not know what was happening with New Bern’s offense. After what seemed to be forever, the game ended with New Hanover beating the Bears 15 to 8.

The weekend continued on Saturday with the MumFest. This is New Bern main festival for the year. They close all of the streets off downtown near Union Point Park. It was 87 degrees on Saturday when I went followed by rain. There were cars, food, games, music, and lot and lots of crafts.

Sunday signaled the end of the weekend and the festival. In the morning a new tradition began with a fun run that had runners all over the streets of Downtown New Bern. More food, crowds and rides then sadly at 5pm the festival was over.

Here is a picture I took at the corner of Broad and Front Street.

MS Bike Tour Hit New Bern NC

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

It was the biggest Bike Tour in the history of New Bern. 2700 Bikers hit the streets of New Bern on this past Saturday and Sunday, including yours truly.

MS Bike Tour

It was a sunny day, highs were to be in the mid 80’s. Bikes were lined up at 7:50am. I took the back of the pack  in order to avoid getting run over by the”serious” bikers.  My team, Team Vin was 60 strong. Some of us were riding the 75 and other were going to ride the 100 mile route. I rode the 75 mile route and it took us all over Beaufort County and part of Craven that I never knew existed.  After 7 rest stops and 5 1/2 hours of straight biking, I finished but not for the entire weekend.  On Sunday, I started the whole process over again but this time I was only going to ride the 30 mile route. 2 hours after the start, I drug my sore behind into the park.

I love this event. The MS Bike Tour is a great fund-raising event for a worthy cause and it is a blast. New Bern becomes very bike friendly during this time. It is so cool to ride over the bridge and throughout the town and ever have to stop for one traffic light!

Pictures will follow as soon as I get them.

P.s I am going to start collecting team member for next year from New Bern, so come and join Team Vin!!

The Epiphany School New Bern NC

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Probably all parents feel this way, but I am so glad that our school started back today even though it was a half day!

Tomorrow will be a full day of community service at different places, some to include an older folks home,  Mercy Clinic and more. The young students will set forth to show their dedication and servant leadership to their community beginning at 9 am.

The students get separated into groups and are identified by either a red, yellow, or orange shirt. So if you see them tomorrow, just let them know what a great job you think that they are doing.

On a different note, The boy’s Falcon soccer game will be on Friday followed by the 1st dance of the year.

check out the falcon link for more details.

Good Times Had By All in New Bern

Monday, October 13th, 2008

2 Great Events occurred this past weekend in New Bern NC Oct. 11th – 12th

1. Home Coming at New Bern High School went off with out a hitch on Friday Night. Home Coming Queen was named and parade was seen, and oh New Bern won.

2. Mumfest came to a close at the tick of 5pm Sunday. It was a sunny day and the crowd was large but not as large as past festivals.

I walked up and down the streets of downtown looking at the arts and crafts, eating kettle corn, visiting a multitude of booths along the way.
