June 23 - July 4th, 2019  In 2019, the Firemans' Competition will be held on Saturday, 6/29 - the rest of the festival will run from Sunday 6/30 through Thursday, 7/4. People come from all over the state of North Carolina (and other states as well) to participate in this old-fashioned, small-town, family-oriented celebration. The population swells and traffic is heavy, but most folks are happy to wait a bit in order to be involved in the event. There is a parade, of course, with bands and clowns and horses. There are firemen games, which are quite wet; plus arts and crafts vendors, food vendors and children's games. At nightfall, there are fireworks over the water. Most significant, there is the naturalization ceremony, in which people of varying nationalities become citizens of the USA.
