Friday, May 9th from 10am-2pm will be I-26 West NC Welcome Center’s 11th Annual Tourism Day.  Come to our beautiful grounds for a fun filled day of free food and entertainment.  Joining us this year will be the 20 time national champions, the Bailey Mountain Cloggers of Mars Hill University.  Musicians Roger Howell and Joel Shimberg will also be performing throughout the day.  Displays of North Carolina attractions will be set up, such as the Blue Ridge Parkway Association and the WNC Farmer’s Market.  We also have confirmed folks from Department of Transportation Beautification, Madison County Tourism and Madison County Ham Radio Operators.  There will be demonstrations of wool spinning, and Max Woody, known for his 64 years of ladderback chair making, will also be on hand.  Bring a picnic or enjoy the goodies from the different exhibitors as we celebrate tourism in North Carolina!
