“It’s just a good time a lot of people leave, they leave Robeson county but they always seem to come home for this event,” said attendee, Michelle Locklear. ” You get to see a lot of folks you haven’t seen in a while, it’s great so if you haven’t been you’re missing out.” she added.

The event ended Saturday with a large fireworks display in downtown Pembroke.
