GREENVILLE, N.C (WNCT) — The Autumn equinox is this Saturday.

When we hear fall, we think of pumpkin patches, apple cider and those pumpkin-spice drinks everyone is so big on. The first day of astronomical fall is determined by when the vertical line that divides day from night crosses over the 90-degree mark.

There are all sorts of fun fall activities going on around ENC to help you get in the spirit of the season. Get in touch with Easter North Carolina’s pirate history Matey, with the Beaufort Pirate Invasion, taking place this weekend.
