PICKLE CLUE The 31st annual North Carolina Pickle Festival will joust you into the past (classic cars, vintage trac- tors) and into the future (new events of pickle eating contest and Got to Be NC Pavilion). It's a memory worth capturing. 16 — Mount Olive Pickle Festival Wednesday, April 26, 2017 Brinkley Entertainment, based in Walnut Cove, will again be providing the rides, said Julie Beck, event orga- nizer. "We have been working with Brinkley — this is my 23rd year and we have been with them at least 23 years," she said. The popular and familiar rides will return this year, she said, from the big slide and motorcycle ride to the bouncy castle and teacups for children 12 and under. There are also height guidelines for older children who enjoy riding some of the upscale rides. To ride the Tempest, they must be at least 48 inches tall, while riders of the Frolic are required to be at least 42 inches tall. Brinkley is adding some new rides this year, Ms. Beck said, but has not announced what they will be yet. They arrive early, to set everything up on that Wednesday, April 26. Then there is the safety inspection on Thursday. The rides are actually open on Friday evening. Wristbands can be purchased for $12 each for all ages, allowing unlimited rides from 5-9 p.m. On Saturday, the rides operate under a ticket system, with a certain number of tickets required for each ride. Continued from 15 RIDES Rides will be available for peo- ple of all ages. It is sure to be a fun time for the whole family. The Pickle Train rolls through downtown Mount Olive during the 2016 N.C. Pickle Festival.
