RURAL HILL, N.C. -- It's a big weekend at Rural Hill, near Huntersville!

The event is the 19th Annual Rural Hill Sheepdog Trials and Dog Festival. It features the United States Border Collie Handlers’ Association, Carolina Dock Dogs, Laura Moretz of the Purina Incredible Dog Team, the Greater Charlotte Shetland Sheepdog Club, and more.

National Border Collie Sheepherding Championships will be held over the two day event, as will as Carolina Dock Dogs and Dog Sports demonstrations featuring the Greater Charlotte Shetland Sheepdog Club and others.

You'll also find heritage breed livestock, hay rides, historic craft and cooking demos, food vendors, shopping, open trails, antique tractors, living history demonstrations in the 1760’s cabin, pumpkin chunkin’, corn launchin’, kid’s activities, and much more!

This morning on Larry's Look, we got a great behind-the-scenes look at some of the activities, including some of the dogs, with their amazing talent! Larry also got a chance to do some "old-fashion pumpkin chunking"!
