It looks like things are starting to slow down a bit this weekend as far as trademark events are concerned. That being said I was able to dig around a bit and find some neat things happening in the area. Hopefully they peak your interest, so let’s get rolling.
On Friday, Nov. 14, the Asheville Bioneers kicked off their third annual “Taste of Bioneers” Conference at the Lenoir-Rhyne Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled,” says Natalie DeRatt, UNC Asheville graduate and newly appointed member of the U.S. national team for bobsledding.

The […]

I learned several things today while snapping photos at Eliada’s annual corn maze. One: it’s challenging to take photos/video of folks running through a corn maze, because with 2.7 miles of trail, I couldn’t find any of the other folks. I could hear them laughing and chattering, but they were just always around the bend […]

And they’re hoping to do it in style, encouraging participants to dress as the undead.
