Meet Your State Symbols!

Event Description

Did you know the state tree is the pine? How about that the state sport is stock car racing? Come out to learn these facts and more - meet your North Carolina state symbols at the symbol for our state, the NC State Capitol! Join the Capitol for a day of FREE, family fun on Saturday, April 27th from 10am to 2pm. Various organizations and individuals representing state symbols will assemble on the Capitol’s east grounds, giving visitors the chance to learn about our symbols and how they affect our environment and cultures through a variety of activities. The event will also feature music and dancing! Did you know our state bird is the cardinal? Or that the state drink is milk? How about the state insect – did you know it’s the western honey bee? We will have representatives of these symbols and more; and in some cases, we’ll even have the actual symbols themselves! This event is rain or shine!
