Three Days of Fun at NC Black Bear Festival

by Michael Polzella

Did you know that Eastern North Carolina has the highest concentration of black bears in the world? The good folks of Washington County do.

In 2016 the NC Black Bear Festival won Event of the Year from the NC Association of Festivals and Events. Come to Plymouth June 2-4 to see all the ways the community celebrates black bears.

The festival features everything from bear tours, animal exhibits and music, to a 5K run, helicopter rides and a Baby Bear Dress-Up Contest. Throw in river tubing and water slides for extra fun. More information at www.ncbearfest.com.
