It's finally spring time in the North Carolina mountains. Coming with the rain and flowers are all the fun events at the Maggie Valley Festival grounds. To start out the 2017 spring season is the Maggie Valley Spring Rally.
Just finishing up with Friday morning brreakfast at His Laboring Few booth. Here is some vendor row pics I took on the way back to the tent to open up.
Most vendors are ready to go. Moments away from opening time.
Looks like the ticket takers are making their way to the gate.
It's 9 am Friday. Gates are now open to the Maggie Valley Spring Rally.
No rain, no snow. Just sun and beautiful skies. Did I leave out the wind? Yea, we have a stiff breeze to start Friday morning off.
This is the booth of His Laboring Few biker ministry. They provide breakfast to vendors and early morning arrivals Friday and Saturday. Thank you Richard "Possum" Mills and Pyro.
The early morning Friday crowd is arriving, parking and getting settled.
Breezy. Did I mention the wind? Check out the flags in the background.

These are the 2017 event pins for the Maggie Valley Spring Rally. They are always a big hit with rally goers.
Check out this antique Ford. It should do well in the Saturday Car Show.
Just love that old Ford. Can't get enough. Also love seeing people buying Maggie Valley Spring Rally event pins in the background.
Everyone seems to be having a good time. Guess everyone is glad to get out of the house for awhile.

More vendors shared the same fate. The weather can be a big opponent on some days.
Someone did not lower their pop up tent before leaving Friday night. An expensive lesson.
This is going to be a very unhappy jewelry vendor when they come in to work this morning. Miss Kitty done what she could do to gather the most distant wind blown products.
Tent open and ready for the Saturday gates to open. Give daddy a good day.
Things are starting to rock at the Maggie Valley Spring Rally. Lots of people moving around and having fun.

How do you like this custom paint job? Very nice.
Everybody loves old stuff. Can you say old? What a beauty.
