Huntersville Traditions Day is just that. A day to step back to a time when life was simpler and where many of the Pocahontas County’s traditions began.

One of the many thing that separates this festival from all the others is its attention to detail and adherence to its theme. Motorized vehicles – indeed, motorized anything – are taboo for the day.

There will be pick-up and drop-off locations throughout the town for wagon rides.

One day cannot hold all the fun and events, so things kick off Friday evening, October 6, at the Huntersville Methodist Church with a free dinner, Pie Auction and Civil War activities.

Saturday morning, the demonstrations, tours of historical buildings and cemeteries, music and food get cranking at 10 a.m., continuing until 4 p.m.

The Huntersville Lunchroom will be the site for a Quilting Bee, as well as knitting, crochet and rag rug demonstrations.

Check out the Old-Time Post Office at the Huntersville School, along with the Muzzleloader and logging demos, blacksmithing and broom making.

There will be apple butter making, Kettle Corn, a Farmers Market, children’s activities, and more.
