Harleys thunder again at 2010 Got to Be NC Festival

RALEIGH — The thunder rolls again at the Got to Be NC Festival with the return of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle parade and display Saturday, May 22.

Around 100 bikers are expected to participate in the annual ride from Ray Price Harley-Davidson on South Saunders Street to the fairgrounds. Bikers will gather at the dealership at 10 a.m., ride to the fairgrounds and arrive at noon through Gate 11. The motorcycles will be on display between the Sam Rand Grandstand and the Holshouser Building, and visitors will be able to vote for their favorite bike in the “People’s Choice” award.

“We’re happy to be part of the Got to Be NC Festival and our community,” said Kris Weiss, promotions manager for Ray Price Harley-Davidson. “That’s why we’re also asking our riders to make a donation to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.”

The Got to Be NC Festival, presented by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, will feature antique farm equipment, Fiber Fest, carnival, live music, a food and wine expo, tractor pulls, barbecue cook-off and more. Festival hours are 9 a.m. to midnight May 21 and 22, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. May 23. Admission and parking for the festival are free. There is a fee for grandstand events.

Other free events at the fairgrounds that weekend include WRAL’s Wellness Weekend, Raleigh Summer Boat Show, Wake County 4-H Horse Show and the Raleigh Flea Market.
