Everyone loves a good festival to get you in the mood for
the seasons changing and upcoming holidays. We would say, even more so in
the fall than the spring. Apple cider, chilly air and decorative gourds excite
your senses while wishing a wonderful summer farewell.
You know we are huge fans of our North Carolina
festivals, so here is a list of some great opportunities for your family to
join this upcoming weekend.
Onslow Oktoberfest– Jacksonville, NC Saturday October, 27th
Starting at 10 a.m. with live music, good food and good
beer you won’t want to miss out! There is a
5k that beings at 8 a.m. as well and a great children’s area with activities
like face painting and magic shows to help keep your little ones entertained.
29th Annual Barbecue Festival– Lexington, NC Saturday October, 27th
Everyone knows us North Carolinians love some good B-B-Q
and why not celebrate that by chowing down on some of the best pork this side
of the Mississippi. Pig isn’t the only thing on the agenda for this festival
though. There will be bicycle stunt shows, a Carnival and Lumberjack Show; to
list a few. The festival starts at 8:30 a.m.
Grover Pumpkin Festival– Grover, NC Saturday October, 27th
Halloween is almost here, so why not celebrate with some pumpkin carving and headless horsemen
carriage rides? This 2-year-old festival in Grover, NC is certainly looking
to make its way into the top ranks for NC festivals. Your family will have the
chance to trick-or-treat safely, pick and carve a pumpkin as well as partake in
costume contests. Make sure you grab your costumes and frightful spirits for
this community celebration which begins at Noon.
