Plan your Weekend. Things to do in NC March 3rd-5th, 2017


Things to do in NC the weekend of March 3rd-5th
Just click on the title of each event to go to the link.

You could run a 5k.  I have done a couple in my lifetime and this one looks like great fun.  It is in Cary NC on Saturday March 4th. 


I must say I am really not sure what this is but it is in Wake Forest on Saturday March 4th.  Check the link for more details.  Here is what they say on their site...
"For over fifteen years the Paperhand Puppet Intervention has been creating original large-scale puppet extravaganzas complete with giant puppets, masks, shadow puppets, stilt dancing, painted flats, live music and more. Their unique story style tells myths from around the world and stories that inspire audiences of all ages."


I love a good rodeo.  I especially enjoy the bull riding and the clowns.  This looks like a good one and it is for one day only on March 4th.  Here si what they have to say on their site...
"Fans of all ages can enjoy edge-of-your-seat action, eight seconds at a time at Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo. The night will feature fan-favorite events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding with the top two riders competing a second time in the thrilling “Winner Take All Showdown Round,” as well as women's barrel racing."


This looks like fun.  You get the opportunity to drive a train.  It is pricy I think $160.00 but it would be a fun experience.  Click the link above for more detail...


I would love to see this. 
"Seven delightful stories come to life in this Theatreworks USA musical review."  Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 3pm  Stewart Theatre, Talley Student Union



This looks like fun too.  Just looked at the weather for Saturday and it is predicted to be 56 degrees.  Sounds perfect....
"Returning for its 6th year, SNOW DAY has become a much-anticipated annual experience at Waverly Place. We invite you to bring your family and friends to Waverly Place for some fun in the snow! – Sat., March 4, 2017 (11am-3pm)"

This is a local fund raising event that will be held in Raleigh on March 5th.  Prices start at $80.00 but it is for a cause.  Check out the site for more info.

My Stay at The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern NC

I was excited.  I was finally headed to New Bern NC.  I had been planning this trip for some time.  Now, where to stay? I found a Bed and Breakfast that received outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor.  What do I look for in a review? Friendly people, excellent location, and fantastic sheets.  I love luxurious sheets:-) After a little over a two-hour drive and thanks to my GPS, I arrived at my destination.  (How did we survive without GPS is the big question.  I remember the passenger would be the map reader and instruct the driver in the way they should go and this did not always make for a pleasant trip.)

 "The historic Street-Ward residence, circa 1882, is home to The Aerie, the premier New Bern, North Carolina bed and breakfast inn and event center.
