This past weekend (November 16, 2013) Love Valley, North Carolina held their first annual "Frontier Days Festival".   With the leaves on the ground and the smell of fall in the air what could be more fun?  Not only this event, but this place, lets you walk back in time, and down the streets of an old Western Town.  Your horse got away from you?  No problem.  Just walk into town just like all the other sod busters do!

Love Valley is a replica of an authentic western town.  Found north of Statesville, North Carolina in the foothills of the Brushy Mountains.  Visit the Mercantile, walk the boardwalk, or stay in the bed and breakfast and spend the weekend riding horses.

If you weren't there this weekend we received reports you missed a great event.  In their pre-event flyer they listed Leatherworking, Quilt Making, Chuckwagon Cooking, Blacksmithing, Crafts, Wagon Rides, Whip Cracking Demo, Street Vendors, Live Music, and much more.  Everyone was encouraged to wear Old West/Frontier wear.

Bill White sent us the following from his experience.  We really appreciate the information and photos he shared with us. A BIG thank you Bill!

The Easy Does It Ranch "True Grits" Chuck Wagon was honored to be one of the main highlights of the first annual Frontier Day Festival in Love Valley North Carolina. The one day event was held in an old replica of the towns out west, located just north of Statesville NC on Hwy 115.

The acclaimed Cowboy Capital of North Carolina, hosted around 200 visitors from the surrounding mountain communities. There were horses, kids, country and blue grass music, venders from all over the area and fun for the whole family. Trick horse demos, sack races for kids and adults, trail rides and blacksmithing shows. The day was topped off by a stick horse race down Main St. and a live auction at 4:00pm.

The Chuck wagon crew served up wonderful home made Brunswick stew, Sweet potato biscuits, peach cobbler and Cowboy Beans by Manual Hicks from Indian Trail NC. The chuck wagon crew was Bill White, Ray Schuffert and DJ Schuffert.

Those at TOPONAUTIC say Yumm!  We don't know about anyone else but sure wished we lived closer and could have made this event.
