    One thing that I am aware of is the Mum Fest in October. The city of New Bern has a soft spot for the Chrysanthemum flower, so much that they devoted a festival to honor it! (Not sure why though)
    Having an education is what helps you succeed. Not going through school to earn a degree is what most of the unemployed has to do with. There are plenty of options for someone who does not have a degree. But the problem is that the positions are filled with other people who do not have a degree. Having a degree in this day and age means everything.
    New Bern is a place where local businesses thrive. So many people, including myself, understand the importance of local restaurants and shops are to the community.
