Sept 25-28, 2014 they have Mayberry Days. This is a full festival for those longing for simplicity of days gone by. Enjoy a bottle of pop, play some checkers, watch the parade, and listen to some great music. Plan well in advance to make sure you can get a great hotel. This would make a memorable anniversary idea for your parents or grandparents with fun for the whole family! Now, if you can't get to Mayberry, you can always go on their website and send yourself a postcard like I did for my picture. They have plenty to choose from.
We made our own postcard right on the Mayberry website. If you can't go to Mayberry you can always make one of your own on their Mount Airey website.
Thanks Mary for your recommendation!
