Kinston, North Carolina Despite the high cost of fuel and a sluggish economy, it's obvious that drivers are prioritizing their resources, spending less on things that don't matter, and saving for things that do. Carolina fans of Freak Show share those instincts, actively supporting this adult-rated, no-holds-barred, wild weekend show. The event hosts a great collection of vehicles and offers overnight camping inside the fairgrounds, one-of-a-kind late-night entertainment, and runnin'-in-the-mud daytime fun at the Lenoir County Fairgrounds in Kinston, North Carolina. Tons of trophies, lots of special awards, dozens of vendors, and the chance to reconnect with old friends at a great weekend get-together keeps Freak Show on everyone's mandatory list.
