26th annual 'Unnatural Resources Fair' returning to Greenville

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - The 26th Annual Eastern Carolina Unnatural Resources Fair is coming back to Greenville in February.

The fair emphasizes the 'Reuse' part of 'Reduce, Reuse & Recycle' by encouraging participants to make something new out of unnatural materials, meaning things that you couldn't find in nature.

Founder Jacqueline Ponder has run the fair for the last 26 years. She appeared on WITN News at Sunrise Thursday to talk about the projects she's seen over the years and the creativity she hopes will be on display once again this year.

The fair is open to projects from anyone who lives east of I-95 in Eastern Carolina.

It will run from February 2-4 with setup on February 1 at the Greenville Convention Center.

You can find entry forms and more information by calling 252-355-1039 or by visiting the Unnatural Resources Institute website.
