Posted May 18, 2012



The Got to Be NC Festival started today at the NC State Fairgrounds! It's free to get in with free parking and there are a number of free activities! Click HERE for the Got to Be NC festival website and a list of free activities.

Sarah with WRAL's Go Ask Mom blog, wrote a great article about the festival with some excellent tips for parents. This festival is like a mini-fair with rides, food vendors and more. It's tons of fun, but Sarah's tips will help prepare you for the festival and all it has to offer.  Click on the link in the box above for "Headed to the Got to Be NC Festival?" to read her tips and find out more about the event.
