Fall color frames the Linville River, this section located in Grandfather Mountain’s hometown of Linville. Those looking for Halloween fun this weekend are encouraged to visit Grandfather Mountain for the park’s annual A Beary Scary Halloween celebration. Featuring games, crafts, nature programs, a costume contest and trick-or-treating, the festival also offers kids the chance to create special treats for the mountain’s furry and feathered habitat residents. Plus, kids in costume get in for half-price! The fun runs from 11 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., rain or shine. Photo by Skip Sickler | Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation
