Here comes a new, fun, Fall festivity that will have you in a hex. Lake Lenape Park will be transformed into a mysterious wooded village of local partners serving up zesty stews and seasonal brews so magical it must be Witch Craft. Tents will be decked in mysterious haunt or corny charm, with approximately 50 brew masters and distillery wizards pouring their classics and seasonal debuts. Inside the grounds, professional pumpkin carvers will perform shapeshifting before your eyes and guide personal carvings that can later be taken home. Local mixologists will be under our demo tent concocting potions that could raise spirits from the dead. Beverages can be enjoyed on the beach around a bonfire, or under the DJ pavilion where a bewitched scene of people will be found dancing the night away! Must be 21 and over to purchase tickets.

Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ Tour and Recital
Boardwalk Hall houses the largest musical instrument on earth. More powerful than a dozen orchestras, it can both whisper and thunder into the 5.5 million cubic feet of air space in the main arena. A second instrument by W. W. Kimball is also part of the Adrian Phillips Ballroom. Both of these incredible machines were included as part of the original stage equipment for the building.

A Curator's Tour of the pipe organ is offered Wednesdays from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. This in-depth 2 hour tour leads guests through several sections of the organ which are normally closed to the public and gives an extremely detailed look at the mechanism of the instrument, its history and the current restoration project. This tour does involve an extensive amount of walking and stair climbing. An alternate tour path is available for persons with limited mobility. The tour is followed by a half hour recital from 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM. Starting May 28 recitals will occur weekdays through September 30 from 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM.

All concerts and tours are free and open to the public with no reservations necessary. However, the Curator's Tour has a suggested donation of $10. All proceeds go toward the restoration of the pipe organs and are gladly accepted at each of the concerts.  Please check their Facebook page for cancellation notices before traveling.
