I am always interested in random holidays and celebrations.
I bet you didn’t know that today, September 12, is National Hollerin’ Day. Or maybe you did know that.
Anyway, there is also a National Hollerin’ Festival being held today in Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina. I guess there will be live music, food, demonstrations, a car show, vendors, and of course, the 46th Annual National Hollerin’ Contest!
Here is a little info on the History of Hollerin’.
And also the history of the National Hollerin’ Contest.
Check out the schedule. It actually looks pretty fun.
And all that fun for only $5! If I was anywhere near that, I would definitely stop by and check it out.
