Jail-A-Thon: Mountaineer Days Heritage Festival

19 October 2019

As a part of the City of Kings Mountain, Mountaineer Days Heritage Festival, the museum will be partnering with Kings Mountain Police Department to throw a Jail-A-Thon!

Remembered most fondly during the Centennial Celebration held in 1974, this year’s Mountaineer Festival will bring back the fun of jailing some of Kings Mountain’s most notable and “notorious.” For the fee of $25, citizens will be able to throw selected members of the community into jail. After being scrutinized by the Magistrate and given an appropriate bond amount, they will have two hours to call and raise the money before being set free. All proceeds will go towards Kings Mountain Historical Museum’s “Museum in a Box” program, to send and share Historic Kings Mountain with local schools. Contact the museum to make your donation, or donate via PayPal here: https://www.kingsmountainmuseum.org/get-involved

The jail will be in Patriots Park on Saturday, October 19th from
12 pm-6 pm, as a part of the Mountaineer Days festivities. You aren’t going to want to miss being a part of this revived, legendary Kings Mountain entertainment.
