Candlelight Tour

Every year on the third weekend in November, Moores Creek travels back to 1776. The park will be illuminated with more than 600 candles along a 3/4-mile path. Throughout the evening, your guided tour willl encounter reenactors who will recount the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge. As you approac the bridge, bagpipes fill the air as Scottish Highlanders wielding broadswords meet you on the path. They lead you across the bridge on a charge up the causeway where you will be met with the sights and sounds of musket and cannon fire. The cost of this event is $3 per person. Children 12 years and under are free.
