Banner Elk's Woolly Worm Festival is known worldwide for its quirky mission of conducting races among woolly bear caterpillars. Races are both days, with Saturday's winner receiving the honor of forecasting the winter weather for the High Country. Saturday's winning worm also takes home $1,000, while Sunday's champ earns $500.
