APRIL FAIRS, FESTIVALS AND OTHER REASONS TO STUFF YOUR FACE


Serena and I at the 2010 Mt. Olive Picklefest (she is cheating).

The weather is getting nice and some good festivals are starting to pop up around the area and state. I personally have been dying to go to a food truck rodeo and it looks like I will be home just in time catch the one in Durham. Another highlight is the Mt Olive Pickle Festival in Mt. Olive, we went last year and had a pretty good time (click here for pickle post). Well hope in the car and enjoy the food, weather and post picks here:
