On the horizon
The Got to Be NC Festival will return to the State Fairgrounds May 29-31 with more than 1,000 antique tractors on display, a North Carolina food show, a barbecue cooking contest, bluegrass and beach music, carnival rides, a petting zoo, a daily tractor parade and a display of classic cars.
In addition to all the free activities, the grandstand will host a draft horse pull, a tractor pull featuring antique machines, and a lawn mower racing competition sponsored by the American Racing Mower Association. Grandstand events are $5 each.
The N.C. Pig Jig cooking contest will pit teams of Masons against one another with the winner being selected by “people’s choice” votes. The Pig Jig is a fundraiser for the Masonic children’s home in Oxford. Festival-goers will be able to sample the different barbecue offerings for $10 per person.
