Kinston-Lenoir Chamber says no plans to move BBQ fest, for now


KINSTON, Lenoir County - Even with flood levels set to rise into major designations later this week and the potential for more rain on Thursday and Friday, the Kinston-Lenoir Chamber of Commerce said Monday the plan for now is to move forward with the BBQ Fest on the Neuse, set for this Friday and Saturday.

The organization said it will update eventgoers on the status of the festival on its website and Facebook page if the date for the event ends up being moved.

While there are plenty of free parking possibilities and shuttles available at the Vernon Park Mall, the chamber will post over the next few days on additions to parking and shuttle opportunities for festival visitors due to potential flooding.
