2015 Little Levels Heritage Fair schedule and info

A fair to celebrate the heritage of the Little Levels area. The last full weekend in June was chosen to coincide with the June 26, 1892 birth of Pearl S. Buck. This year’s Little Levels Heritage Fair is celebrating the Little Levels Horse Show that began over 100 years ago on Beard Road. Many fine thoroughbred horses were raised in the Little Levels. One horseman was Robert H. Burns, Grandfather of PBS Documentary Writer, Ken Burns.

Previously centered around the Hillsboro Elementary School, in 2013 the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace property became the “Fair Grounds”. The fair showcases local talent and products, and serves as a fundraiser for volunteer and civic organizations of the area. Our goal is to preserve as much of the history and heritage as possible through written stories and pictures of the area. We work with Preserving Pocahontas, Genealogy Group, PC Historical Society and the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace along with area residents.

Juanita Fireball & the Continental Drifters debuted at the Pocahontas County Opera House in 2008, although they have been making music together in one form or another for twenty-five years. They play Appalachian string band tunes, many of which they learned years ago from old-timers in West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. They sing songs about animals, outlaws, fruit and love, with a few gospel numbers for balance. The high energy of their hard-driving music will have you dancing in the aisles.

The band consists of Mike Burns and Jay Lockman on twin fiddles, Mary Sue Burns on clawhammer banjo, Wayne Walton on the doghouse bass, and John Sparks and Terry Richardson on guitar.
