Headed to the Got to Be NC Festival: Here are 5 things you need to know
The annual Got to Be NC Festival kicks off Friday for three days of free entertainment.
The annual event, which I like to call a mini-State Fair, features everything from a daily tractor parade to rides and lots of food. It all takes place at the N.C. State Fairgrounds in west Raleigh.
If you’re headed to the festival, here are five things to know:
Most of it is. Admission and parking are free, and the vast majority of the entertainment is free, but not all of it.
You’ll need to pay for the carnival games and rides, food from the vendors, pony rides and the Masonic Carolina Pig Jig barbecue cook off. The Pig Jig is $15 for adults ages 11 and up and $5 for kids age 7 to 10). The Local Goodness Marketplace requires a $3 admission. Kids 6 and under are free.
