28. Shout "Opa!" at the top of your lungs at the Yiasou Greek Festival
Easily the most popular festival in Charlotte, Yiasou is a must visit event every September. Grab a gyro (pronounced ye-row, I’m looking at you New Yorkers) and take a stroll around the historic grounds of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral. Dance through the evening with the traditional folk dancers and the Fabulous Grecian Keys band.
29. Be a glutton for punishment and claim victory in the Midwood Challenge
Calling the Midwood Challenge just another sandwich is like calling The Beatles a decent rock band. Weighing in at 2 ½lb with a large order of fries on the side, this is the Grand Poobah of sandwiches. Roast beef, ham, turkey, provolone, swiss, and american cheese topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and horseradish mayo on a giant bun. It’s okay though, you can sleep it off on the plane home and dream of your next visit to the Queen City.
