Cow Patty Bingo and 5K
Play Cow Patty Bingo and support the Rolesville High School athletic program. Here’s what happens: a local cow roams the football field (marked off in 3-by-3-foot squares corresponding to ticket numbers) until it “drops a patty” on a square, declaring a winner. Each $5 ticket is one chance to win the $500 prize. There is also a 5K race, an iPad mini raffle, food, games, live music, dance performances, local vendor booths and other family activities.
11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday; Rolesville High School Rams Stadium, 1099 E. Young St., Rolesville; $5; racnc.com/cowpatty
