Tired of the same old Saturday? Here are some things that you may not have experienced yet.

First Gold Festival at Reed Gold Mine: Celebrate the nation’s first gold strike, right here in North Carolina. (Take that, California!) Free

Wild West Family Fun Day at Southern Breezes Farm. Rope a (plastic) steer. Explore a Wild West town. Music, food, fun for kids. Free

Hot Dog Eating Contest at Concord Mills. It’s too late to enter but if you enjoy watching professional and amateur eaters vie for the chance to compete in the national championship at Coney Island, this is some free entertainment.

King Shazaam Elvis Show at Toni and Jerrie’s Italian Restaurant in Matthews. Let The King entertain you as you enjoy a delicious dinner. If you’re thinking of going out to eat, why not enjoy some free music too?

The Charlotte on the Cheap calendar is jam-packed with other free and cheap activities this weekend.
