Go Nuts in Brevard - 2010 White Squirrel Festival

By
Real Estate Agent with Looking Glass Realty

It's that time of year again! Time to go nuts for the 2010 White Squirrel Festival.  It's all happening May 28-29 in downtown Brevard, NC. white squirrel

The center piece of the two day festival, voted the best music festival in Western North Carolina by the Asheville Citizen Times readers in 2008, is the music. Performances by 19 different groups begins both days at noon and goes until 10:30 pm.

But music is just a part of this annual event. One of the highlights is the Squirrel Box Derby. Two age groups, 8-11 and 12-17 build their vehicles for speed as well as crowd appeal.  The race is strictly based on gravity as contestants head down "Jail House Hill" to the finish line.  There's also a photo contest and of course vendors lining both sides of the street throughout the day.  If you're up for some exercise, you can compete in the 5K and 10K Squirrel Races sponsored by the local Rotary Club.

Why White Squirrels? There are lots of legends and stories about how our area became home to so many white squirrels, but whichever story you choose to believe, white squirrels are part of the character of Brevard so why not celebrate it!

If you're in the Brevard area....come on downtown and catch some home town fun!
