Exploring Kathiey's Local World. "Got to Be NC Festival" Raleigh NC

Last Sunday Joe and I were looking for something to do.  We did not have much money to spend so we were looking for something cheap or free.  I came across the 2011 "Got to Be NC Festival" in Raleigh. ....Here is how they describe it on their site....
"Join your friends and family for three great days of down-home celebration North Carolina-style at the 2011 Got to Be NC Festival. Coming to the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh May 20-22, the festival will feature North Carolina’s agricultural bounty and mix in a generous dash of music and fun for everyone. General admission is free to all ages, including all grandstand events. But bring a little money for pay as you go rides, games and food."
Sounded interesting so off we went.....
Joe would agree with the quotes below.....:-)

Tractors everywhere...

If you have never had John Deere ice cream you don't know what you are missing.
We enjoy it every year at the NC State Fair.  Our yearly ice cream treat:-)
We had a nice time at the Got to Be NC Fest.  Fun time at a very low cost.
Get out and try something new.
Enjoy Your World:-)
