As North Carolina entered Phase 2 of the reopening plan, New Bern was ready to engage.
Part of Middle St and Pollock St in Downtown New Bern were closed to traffic as of 5:00 PM Friday May 22, 2020 until 11:00 PM.
This will be happening each Friday and Saturday evening during the Phase 2 plan.
If you spoke with anyone that was entertaining themselves, it was like a breathe of fresh air - literally.
A very common phrase was "We should do this more often like this."
Perhaps this WILL be a regular downtown feature!
Below are some selected photos and a full gallery at the bottom.
