WOOLLY WORM FESTIVAL

Far from being a normal festival, the Woolly Worm Festival became a tradition rooted in Lee County’s culture. The woolly worm is believed to forecast the weather for the coming winter season. A woolly worm’s body has 13 segments-each corresponding to a week in winter. If a segment is light brown, that means the week will be mild. If a segment is black, that means a harsh, cold week. The worm acted as a weather predictor for many old time farmers who would harvest crop and cut firewood in preparation for the upcoming winter. 

Festival food, Woolly Worm Races, Live Entertainment on two stages, Inflatables for the kids, and over 100 booths up and down both sides of Main Street. Enjoy the opening ceremony on Friday, October 24th, Parade on Saturday October 25th, and Car Show and Closing ceremony on Sunday, October 26, 2014.
