40th Annual Ayden Collard Festival Winds Down

WITN is once again a proud sponsor of the Ayden Collard Festival, which kicked off Thursday evening.

This once small-town parade and dance has evolved into a statewide anticipated festival bringing up to 15,000 visitors to Pitt County.

The 40th Annual Ayden Collard Festival will have rides, live entertainment, dance performances, BMX shows, arts & crafts and local business vendors, along with a golf and cornhole tournament, collard cooking contest, and collard eating contest.

The 4-day festival ended Sunday with an indoor art show.
