On October 31, 2013, The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfastis excited to be a part of Go-Trippin with Ghosts and Goblins: Halloween History, Happenings and Haunts. On Halloween, starting at 4pm, meet us on the porch at the inn, where you will receive a walking map that will take you through the Montford Historic District as well as Riverside Cemetery.
The Historic District is home to 100 year old houses, many of which will be decorated for the holiday. You will be drawn through the neighborhood and as you trick or treat, you will use your smart phone to follow the prompts on the map (Make sure you download the Field Trip App either from Google Play or the App Store in advance of the event.). Remember to use the exclusive hashtags! One lucky tripper will win a night in the Margaret Grace Room at the inn! You'll also see the beautiful 1885 Riverside Cemetery, the final resting place to famous authors, Civil War generals and many others! The spot where Zelda Fitzgerald tragically perished in a fire at Highland Hospital in 1948 is on the route, too.
When you're done, come back to the inn to help us hand out candy (and maybe finish decorating the porch!). Other Field Trip day door prizes* will also be given to a lucky few that pre-register and attend our event.
*Subject to availability the night of the event
