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....

Hiking The New Hope Overlook

I signed up for another Meetup group hike.  I never know what I am going to see on these hikes, I am always excited for the new adventure.  I grabbed my camera and headed toward Jordan Lake.  I will be quoting a site I signed up for AllTrails.com.  It's free.  If you are at all interested in area hiking trails you should check out the site.

"New Hope Overlook Blue Route is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Moncure, North Carolina that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash."AllTrails.com
Dogs are allowed on the trail. I did not take Brodie. The hikes are at a fast clip with this group so it may be difficult to drag him; literally along. Brodie and I go on 3-mile walks in our neighborhood. After about 3 miles he keeps looking at me as if to say "can we go home now?"  Ann was our fearless leade…

Shelton Vineyards in Dobson NC

It's fall, my favorite time of year.  Now is a good time to travel up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to feel the cool crisp air and hopefully see the colorful fall leaves.  Erica and I decided to stop a few of the many wineries in NC on our mini vacation.  On the way to Blowing Rock we took a slight diversion to Shelton Vineyards in Dobson NC
Here is what they say on their website...

Located in the Yadkin Valley American Viticultural Area, the vineyard shares a similar climate and growing season to that of some of the best wine growing regions in Europe. The vineyard is one of the largest on the East Coast.

One thing I like about Shelton Vineyards is the fact that they have a restaurant. We decided to eat lunch and enjoy some of their delicious wines.  First stop was the Harvest Grill 
 We decide to try their wine flight.  It came out on a tiered display.  Five wines of your choosing.  As they brought the flights out there were many Oohhs and Aahhs from our fellow diners.  It also spa…
