Friday Night Downtown
NOTE: The 2020 North Carolina Pickle Festival and associated events, like the Friday Night Downtown events, are canceled because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Please check back with us for 2021!
Downtown Mount Olive is the place to be on Friday evening, April 24! The fun starts with the Pay One Price Carnival Rides from 5-9 p.m. Ride all you want for $12. Concessions will be available at the rides, located at the corner of West Main and Chestnut Streets.
Around the corner on Center Street, The Feral Cats will get the night off to a rock n roll start live in front of Ribeyes Steakhouse from 6-8, and country artists Steel County Express takes us from 8-10. Bring a chair and your dancing shoes…
Last but certainly not least, Friday Night also includes the Cuke Patch 5K Glow Run. Bring a friend or four, dress in your craziest pickle OR 1870s costume in keeping with our celebration of Mount Olive’s 150th anniversary for 2020, grab your glow stick, and run the 5K in the dark. Prizes for best costume will be awarded!
