The Town of Ahoskie’s 10th Annual Heritage Day Festival is this weekend, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13-14.  9 On Your Side’s own Andrea Blanford is serving as Celebrity Grand Marshal in the parade on Saturday.  If you’re looking for a fun-filled event for the family, come out to Ahoskie for good food, music, and games.

Here are just a few of the things going on this weekend at the Ahoskie Creek Amphitheater: The Band of Oz is set to perform Friday at 7 p.m.  The BBQ Cook-off begins Friday night; visitors can enjoy the pork with all the fixin’s Saturday afternoon when the winner is announced.  Plates are $10 at the event with proceeds benefiting the Ahoskie Public Library.

The Heritage Day Parade begins at 10 a.m. Saturday on Main St.  The parade route runs down Pembroke Ave., ending at the festival grounds where winners for best parade entry will be announced.  Entries will be judged on originality, overall appearance and relevance to the history and cultural heritage of Ahoskie.  First place will take home a $300 cash prize.
