North Carolina Weekend

The schedule for the week of Aug. 30 on UNC-TV’s “North Carolina Weekend” is different this week due to PBS televising the Republican National Convention. “North Carolina Weekend” will be pre-empted on Thursday night on UNC-TV (but will run on UNC-EX) and will air as usual on Friday. For this week’s episode, be amazed at the “Accidental Mummies of Guanajuato” exhibit at the Natural Science Center of Greensboro. Enjoy the N.C. Gourd Festival in Raleigh. Take to the skies at the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte. Get your toes a-tappin’ at the Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention in Lenoir. And check out the Wildwater Zip and Yurt Adventure in Bryson City. (Please note: listings are subject to change.) “North Carolina Weekend” is exclusively underwritten by the N.C. Division of Tourism. In addition, UNC-TV has made recent editions of “North Carolina Weekend” available online.
