BBQ in the Carolinas

Beginning at 10:00am, join the staff at Pettigrew State Park to learn about BBQ in the Carolinas. In celebration of all things BBQ, the park will be hosting lots of fun and exciting opportunities. Stroll into the park office to check out our interactive exhibit titled, "The Story of BBQ in NC".  If hearing about BBQ makes you hungry while you are here, Lake Phelps Volunteer Fire Department will be selling BBQ plates as well as BBQ by the pound. Prices will be $8 for each and pickup will start at 11:00am.  Somerset Place State Historic Site will also be offering a special 30 minute tour to learn about the Collin's family smoke house, salt house, and kitchen rations. Programs will be given on an hourly basis from 11-2. Pettigrew staff will provide hayrides (weather permitting). 
This is a rain or shine event. Please come out to support our local community!
