Classic Movie Night: "Libeled Lady" @ Yancey Theatre | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

The Burnsville Classic Movie Club has chosen “Libeled Lady” for their July showing. The film involves an editor, his ignored fiancee and his former employee, who is a down-on-his-luck reporter. Together they hatch an elaborate scheme to turn a false news story into truth to stop a high-society woman from suing the newspaper. This 81-year-old screwball comedy with four stars — Spencer Tracy, Jean Harlow, William Powell and Myrna Loy — performing at their peak is a pleasure to watch. “Libeled Lady” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1936. Everyone is invited to join Classic Movie Club members as they view this great film once again on the big screen as it was intended to be shown. As always, there are no ticket sales for these events, but donations are appreciated and needed to keep our classic movie series going.

Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – Oct 22 @ 4:00 pm
Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School | Banner Elk | North Carolina | United States

Since 1978, this quirky, world-famous festival has been used to predict the upcoming winter weather for the North Carolina High Country.

According to legend, the 13 bands on the woolly worm (woolly bear caterpillar) represent the 13 weeks of winter. Brown bands indicate a mild week, black bands indicate a cold, snowy week. Since every woolly worm has different colors, the Woolly Worm festival holds races to determine which worm is used to make the forecast. The owner of the winning worm receives $1,000!

Festival also includes about 175 craft vendors, food, live entertainment and rides. This two-day family event annually draws more than 20,000 attendees.
