Weekend Update: June 28-30

We’re starting our weekend update a little earlier this week, and we’re sure many little girls and boys will be excited to hear about the Pet A Pony Day event happening Thursday in conjunction with this week’s horse show.

Join us this weekend in the Hunt Horse Complex for the North Carolina Hunter Jumper Association  annual show. Admission is free, and the show will run from June 26-30. Each day’s festivities begin at 8 a.m., so don’t miss an opportunity to see the horse jumping show excitement.

Thursday is Pet A Pony Day, where people can pet ponies and learn about horse health and care. Interested attendees will also have the chance to watch the jumping show and see a farrier, a horse-shoer, at work. The events will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday and are in conjunction with the N.C. State University School of Veterinary Medicine.

Session I of the Boy Scouts of America’s Cub Scout day camp will come to a close on Thursday, and session II will kick off on Friday in the Harrill Center.



About Jane Deere

My name is Rebecca, but around here, you can call me Jane Deere. My love for the State Fair and all that it brings - John Deere tractors, the barbecue sundae and Midway lights at night - is what landed me here. After interning in 2013, I'm back with the Deep Fried crew to enjoy the fair for a few days.
