Weekend Update: March 16-18

The 23rd annual N.C. RV & Camping Show finds a nice place to park this weekend at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

The convoy is lining up and moving in at the N.C. State Fairgrounds this weekend for the 23rd annual N.C. RV & Camping Show. We’ll also have a Hunter Jumper show in the Hunt Horse Complex and a bead show in the Scott Building. Plus, with a little luck from the Irish you might find the item you’ve been waiting for at the Raleigh Flea Market this St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

The 23rd annual N.C. RV & Camping Show is the last one of the season in North Carolina. So, if you’re in the market for a new RV, don’t miss your chance to explore hundreds of makes and models. The event also will feature RV educational seminars, maintenance workshops and camp cooking classes scattered throughout the Graham Building, Expo Center and Dorton Arena. Doors open Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and children under 13 are admitted for free. Discount tickets and other specials are available at the organizer’s website.

The Raleigh Indoor Spring Classic is already underway at the Hunt Horse Complex. The show, organized by Triangle Farms, lasts through Sunday. Shows start daily at 8 a.m.

Saturday and Sunday, the Scott Building will host a variety of vendors selling beads and bead-related items during the Bead Mercantile Show. Whether you’re looking to complete your current project or hoping to stock up on supplies, this is the show for you. Workshops are also available during the two-day event. Admission is free. Doors are open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
