Green Thought Thursday: OktoberBEST and the Pepper Festival

By Posted in - Sustainability on September 29th, 2011

If you think this looks like fun, then join me at Briar Chapel’s OktoberBEST this Sunday!

It’s Green Thought Thursday, so let’s celebrate…on Sunday! No, really.

This Sunday, Briar Chapel (client) is hosting OktoberBEST, a day of fun, games and friendly competitions, immediately followed by the Fourth Annual Pittsboro Pepper Festival, celebrating lots of things green.

Be sure to stop by between 1 to 4 p.m. for OktoberBEST and challenge me to a game of Wii Bowling. The winner will reign supreme as Briar Chapel’s best armchair athlete. Video games not your thing? Join us outside for a race down the obstacle course. Who knows? You could even be named the next backyard athlete champion!

And bring the rest of the family, dogs included! I most definitely will be stopping by the Pooch Park for a chance to test out Charley’s skills in the Canine Athletics competition. Winners from each competition can win a variety of prizes, including free tickets to the Pepper Festival, starting at 4:00 in Briar Commons, Briar Chapel’s newest park.

If you’ve never been to the Pepper Festival before, you’re in for a treat. Local farmers, local food, local chefs and local music — you’ll really go loco for local. And even better, all proceeds will benefit The Abundance Foundation, a local nonprofit that seeks to educate the community on sustainability through local food and renewable energy.

So riddle me this, faithful Green Thought Thursday readers — will I see you there? I sure do hope so!

    I may be most excited about all of the new dog friends I’m going to make. Well, that and the pepper brews from Fullsteam and Triangle Brewing Co.

    Is that a hippety-hop in the photo? I know someone who is really good at that.

      Kristy, I am not sure if my coordination will lend itself to BMX biking. I certainly will try! 🙂
