Tar Heels Kick Up Their Heels at the Kernersville Spring Folly Festival

The first weekend in May brings music and family fun to Kernersville. Highlights of the May 3-5, 2013 Spring Folly are the free concerts. Venture to North Carolina for a “Fun for All, and All for Fun!” good time. 

Guests at Duncan Hill Inn in Kannapolis will receive a 10% discount during Spring Folly and Mother’s Day weekend. The festival will be full of great food but save room for dessert when you return to this bed and breakfast. The whole family can stay and will want to because the inn is attached to a bakery; the Master Suite has an adjacent Children’s Room. Extend your vacation by a few days to laze on a hammock or fish in the pond of the five-acre grounds.

Historic Augustus T. Zevely Inn is 15 minutes away from the Spring Folly. Located in the Old Salem Historic District, guests can experience an 18th-century Moravian town while being surrounded by bustling Winston-Salem. The entire bed and breakfast has been meticulously restored with authentic and high-quality reproduction furniture and fixtures. Share festival stories with other guests in the comfortable parlor then explore young history at the 21st Annual Spring Folly and the old history at this charming inn.

Add elegance to your festival vacation with a gourmet dinner at the Arrowhead Inn in Durham. This family-friendly, renovated, historic plantation has six acres of gardens and lawns. Find your favorite kind of music on the festival schedule to dance the day and night away, and then reserve a fireside couples massage to sooth your weary legs. Seven guest rooms are located in the Manor House but for the ultimate private getaway, stay in the Carolina Log Cabin with a double spa whirlpool and second-story sleeping loft.

Purchase one-of-a-kind art at the festival then admire the paintings and prints decorating The Kerr House Bed and Breakfast in Statesville. Sip a glass of wine on the wrap-around porch or curl up with a book in the parlor. Breakfast is a special delight when goat cheese omelets or blueberry ricotta pancakes are on the menu. Walk tree-lined streets to the shops and restaurants downtown. Discounts are offered for AAA members, senior citizens, and active military.

Extend your vacation to explore another part of the state at The Chandler Inn in Highlands. Aptly named, the area is the highest incorporated town east of the Rocky Mountains. Less than 1,000 people live in the city year-round yet the population blossoms during the summer resort months. A lively and lush forest surrounds the bed and breakfast. Ten guest rooms offer private entrances and bathrooms. Start your day listening to the birds singing as you enjoy your breakfast on the deck.

If you bring the children they will enjoy a variety of rides at the festival or meet a furry friend in the petting zoo. Decorators can find unique pieces at the Arts & Crafts show. Mint-condition antique cars and bicycles will ride again.
