This contest is over! Congratulations to our winner: lawra.

I have two tickets for the N.C. Symphony's Fables for Families concert next weekend to give away!

The concert, part of the symphony's Summerfest season at Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, is chock full of family fun.

You'll hear music of fairy tales, fables, Harry Potter and more. Ticket holders can dress up in a fable- or fairy tale-inspired costume. There will be prizes for the most imaginative costumes with categories for kids and adults.

Kids can try out instruments at the symphony's Instrument Zoo. There's a magic fountain of bubbles, face painting and a Hansel and Gretel candy station, too. And Marbles Kids Museum and Durham's Museum of Life and Science will have activities before the concert and during intermission.

Finally, Whole Foods Market of Cary will be looking for families with the biggest and boldest culinary skills. The store will select the weekend's best picnickers to receive a $100 gift basket from Whole Foods. Two honorable mentions will get $20 gift cards.

It all starts at 7:30 p.m., June 16. Best of all, kids 12 and under are admitted free for lawn seating. General admission lawn seating is $28 in advance, $33 at the door. Go to the symphony's website for details and to buy tickets.

I have two tickets to give away (and that will get a family of four in for free if your kids are 12 and under).

What do you need to do to enter to win? One or both of the following:

1. Follow @WRALmoms on Twitter and tweet once about the contest.

2. Answer the following question in the comments below: What's your favorite fable or fairy tale?

This contest ends at noon, June 11. One winner will be picked at random from all entries. The winner's user name or Twitter name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. June 11 and an email or message will be sent to the winner, if possible. The winner must respond by 5 p.m. June 12 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!
