Every year in Pilot Mtn, a small town in the northern Piedmont/Foothills of North Carolina, vendors and visitors from all over attend Mayfest, a spring festival with arts, crafts, food, games, music, and more. See the flyer here for some basic information.

Main Street is closed down and covered with tents and vendors.

On a normal day, Main Street is home to traditional and historical shops such as the Drug Store/Soda Fountain, a few banks, the Hardware Store, and a Country Store.

As you can see on the sign, Pilot Mountain was historically called Mount Pilot, as also heard on the television show, The Andy Griffith Show.

Scott and I attended the annual Spring Art Exhibit of student artwork at the
Stokes County Arts Council.

The Arts Council is in Danbury, the county seat of Stokes.

Here you see the "Old Courthouse,"
currently the Board of Education Building, which is directly across the street from
the Arts Council Building and a view from behind the Arts Council.

Students with work on display during this show are students at
the 3 local high schools, North Stokes, South Stokes, and West Stokes.
