The 36th annual BBQ Festival on the Neuse is Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6 in Kinston.
In addition to all the great food and contests, you will find amusement rides, arts and crafts, music, children's activities, a car and truck show, and even fireworks on Friday!
WITN is a proud sponsor of this event. Come visit WITN personnel at our booth during the festival.
