Wilson’s Whirligig Festival is normally held during the first weekend of November and is a very big weekend for the Police Athletic League. During the festival the league fundraises for programs through selling Turkey Legs, Barbeque, Fried Oreos, Fried Twinkies, Fried Snickers, or Fried AnythingElseWeCanThinkOf! We are very grateful for the donations and support that we receive from our supporters.
The youth also get very involved in our efforts during Whirligig. Explorer Post members take a very active role in providing event security and traffic direction in conjunction with our police officers. Participants in our PAL programs often volunteer to come help prepare, cook, sell, and eat the items on our menu.
If you are in Wilson during the Whirligig Festival, stop by and see us!
