Join the Friends of the Delaware Canal on Tuesday, October 29 for “A Haunting Evening in Yardley.” The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner at the Continental Tavern, 2 North Main Street, followed by a stroll along North Edgewater Avenue to see the display of more than one hundred Canal-O-Ween jack-o-lanterns.
October 29 is the night to hang out at two of the spookiest spots in Yardley. The owner of the historic Continental Tavern has promised to hold the establishment’s ghosts at bay while the Friends and guests have dinner. (There have been recent otherworldly sightings.) After having pumpkin ice cream for dessert, the diners will head to nearby North Edgewater Avenue, the site of Canal-O-Ween, a spectacle of cleverly carved jack-o-lanterns lined up along the banks of the Delaware Canal. This quarter-mile-long display of creativity evokes the spirit of Halloween with flickering, candle-lit pumpkins; the still waters of the Canal; and night shadows.
A donation of $25 per person is requested for “A Haunting Evening in Yardley.” For more information and to view the Continental Tavern dinner menu, visit www.fodc.org or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215- 862-2021. Please make reservations no later than October 24.
