You can sleep under the stars in New Castle County. Saturday October 15th is the return of the community wide campout event!

Sleep Under The Stars New Castle County is back after a hiatus during the Covid-19 pandemic. Families camp overnight in beautiful Carousel Park with fun fall activities provided by New Castle County. This camping event is for the experienced camper and novice alike.

At the campout event you and your family will  be able to enjoy bonfires, a movie under the stars, DJ, Monster Mash dance party, spooky tent decorating contest, tent-to-tent trick-or-treating, fall crafts, food trucks, and more.

Hocus Pocus is the movie choice this year!
