Once again it's time for Farmers Day in Richlands, NC. This "hometown" festival has lots of family stuff to do. Arts and crafts vendors, kiddie rides, food, entertainment on the stage all day. The county museum is in Richlands and the director does a guided hayride through town and talks about the historic architecture and the history of the county--very interesting.
For us, the MAIN EVENT is the tractor show. All colors, especially Cubs are welcome to come and show. We have a parade of power in front of the stage (I believe it's at 2:30 this year) and there's a parade through town at 9AM. The sponsors charge a dollar per entry to be in the parade, it is free to show tractors--there's also no admission to attend the festival and the only $$ you really need is for whatever lemonade, hotdogs, and other "fair food" you want to buy, and any goodies you want to buy from the craft vendors.
The proceeds from this event benefit local FFA programs. This past year, the event sponsors gave one of my students a $1500 college scholarship, and paid half of the fee for our 9 FFA officers to attend state leadership conference.
PM me if you have questions. Come to eastern NC, spend Saturday at Farmers Day, and Sunday at the beach....
