Here's a fun and unusual event taking place this weekend - the fossil festival at Aurora, near New Bern:

Aurora Fossil Festival 2013

Aurora, which is a very tiny town, has a fossil museum and large piles of sand from the local mines, in which you can find fossilized shark teeth (and other creature teeth). The annual fossil fest is apparently really something to see - plus, you can dig for your own fossils.

I am a shark tooth finding addict and will probably go to have some of my items IDed. Last time I was in the area I went to the "piles" (which are always available for digging, they are right outside on the main street) - found over 20 fossil teeth!
