Approximately 100 bikers will make the trip together to the Got to Be NC Festival this weekend, from Ray Price Harley-Davidson on South Saunders Street in Raleigh to the N.C. State Fairgrounds.
After arriving at the festival 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," says 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."
But Harley Davidsons are just the beginning of the fun at the Got to Be NC Festival, presented by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The three-day festival will feature a carnival and antique farm equipment, a Fiber Fest, 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.
Some additional free events at the fairgrounds during the weekend include WRAL's Wellness Weekend, Raleigh Summer Boat Show, Wake County 4-H Horse Show and the Raleigh Flea Market.
