Bull Moon Rising in Downtown Durham

For the first time in North Carolina, a giant breathtaking spherical replica of the moon – with a diameter of nearly 23 feet – will hang above Bull City as part of a once-in-a-lifetime community experience. The internally lit sculpture, “Museum of the Moon,” will be suspended over CCB Plaza and open to the public for four days over Halloween weekend, supported by free events and fundraising components giving back to the community. To kick things off, the sculpture will be illuminated by local drag stars Vivica C. Coxx, Stormia Daie and Naomi Dix. Immediately following, enjoy a Halloween-themed performance by Paperhand Puppets. Mayor Steven Schewel will read popular children’s book “Goodnight Moon” and the Durham Medical Orchestra’s Brass Group will serenade you under the Moon over CCB Plaza. Thursday, 6 – 9 pm; 201 Corcoran St, Durham, NC 27701
