Fall Festivals in the Triangle
In the Triangle area of North Carolina this is the time for festivals, fairs, shows and parades and they range from the huge North Carolina State Fair going on now thru October 27th to local Harvest Festivals and Fall parades. The many small and growing towns that make up the Triangle all provide lots of community events and each one is unique to that town. Small towns like Clayton, Holly Springs, Apex, Knightdale do a great job of bringing the residents together and providing a sense of community.
Towns in the Triangle Festivals
Along with the towns around the Triangle you’ll find smaller events and places to spend and afternoon or morning at a leisurely pace, listen to some music or get a history lesson. Pumpkin farms abound around the triangle and there are plenty of farm stands selling Fall foods, plants and decorations. Selma has antiques, Duplin County has the oldest operating winery in NC. This time of year you could find Zombies in Raleigh, or you could do a walking food tour of some of the great restaurants downtown. The Fear Farm in Clayton is in full swing scaring hundreds of kids and grownups alike.
Things to do in Clayton
The Antique Tractor and Car Show in Flowers Plantation is a small event but has some neat old vehicles, music and is a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Fall Saturday. It’s normally held behind Percy Flowers Store across Buffalo Road from the new Harris Teeter.
