As October rolls around, Kinston is buzzing with excitement. Following your race, be sure to extend your stay and immerse yourself in the festivities. One event you absolutely can’t miss is BRAD-FEST on October 21st at Pearson Park! Get ready to dance, sing, and celebrate with live music from 3:00-9:00 pm. Bring your family, friends, and your best dancing shoes because Downtown Kinston is the place to be!

But the excitement doesn’t end there. We’ve got even better news for you! We’re thrilled to announce that we plan to do it all over again in 2024, so mark your calendars early. Before you bid Kinston goodbye, secure your spot at the Mother Earth Motor Lodge for October 19, 2024, and ensure you’re part of the adventure next year.
