WITN is once again a proud sponsor of the Ayden Collard Festival which kicks off Thursday evening. Rides and vendors will open at 6pm followed up with live music by East Coast Rhythm & Blues Band at 8pm.
This once small-town parade and dance has evolved into a statewide anticipated festival bringing 10-15 thousand visitors to Pitt County.
The 39th Annual Ayden Collard Festival will have carnival rides, live music, dance performances, BMX shows, arts & crafts and local business vendors along with golf, cornhole, cooking, and eating tournaments.
The 4-day festival ends Sunday September 8th with a 5k road race and 1 mile run/walk, which helps raise funds for the event.
