The people, united, can never be defeated! By popular demand, the Ayden Collard Festival will be held after all.
Here are the particulars from their Facebook post:
Rides and vendors will open on Friday night at 5pm and we will close the night with Fantasy band on stage. Saturday will begin at 10am with the Collard Festival Parade, followed by rides, entertainment, and vendors all day. We will close Saturday night with The Embers on West Avenue Stage!
For background information on Ayden, the local heirloom collards, and the Festival, see here. And, as you will recall, Ayden is home to the two best Eastern North Carolina style barbecue places on the face of the earth, Bum’s Restaurant
and the Skylight Inn.
I am cautiously optimistic that I’ll be able to attend. I hope to see you there.
