PLYMOUTH, N.C. (WITN) - The North Carolina Black Bear Festival is set to return this year in-person.

The Plymouth based festival that takes place the first weekend in June every year, was forced to switch to a virtual platform last year due to the pandemic.

This year, gates will open again to visitors as the festival kicks off June 4 at 6 p.m. with live musical performances by Cooper Greer and Paige King Johnson.

The “Run with the Bears 5K” will begin at 7:30 a.m. June 5, and gates to the festival will open at 10 a.m.
