Work on our CountySpot expansion continues with the creation of two business directories in NC

Our latest additions to the county by county resource sites are Vance and Granville County in North Carolina. Both of these sites feature the latest upgrades to the County Spot Directories templates and include features like free specials and sale offers from business, free classified ad posting links and a great new event handling system.

All County Spot Directories will offer simple one time registration!

As we continue to improve our directory resources we thought that it would be nice to offer a single log in for our businesses and event or classified submitting users. Both of the new North Carolina county sites offer a single log in feature which allows your user ID and password to work here at or at either one of the NC directory sites. This feature should also soon be integrated for our Pennsylvania county directories as well!

Henderson and Oxford area photos and information.

During the holiday season we spent some time in Vance and Granville counties and will be adding new photos to both of those sites in the very near future. We are also working to collect business information and compiling the municiple articles for these county informational sits.

County Spot Directories has completed the upgrade to our newest version in Blair County PA. 

blaircountyBlair County was the very first site created by the County Spot Directories and is now updated to include all of our latest features for this Altoona area site. New features like improved coupon management and better event handling have been installed. The newest version makes the information collected for our Altoona area site much easier to navigate and should drive even more traffic to the site. Check out the new features of the Blair County Information and Business Directory.

Our Centre County site was the first to get the newest upgrade and we now have plans to move on to our Cambria County Business Directory site.

2nd Annual Wing Festival at American Legion Park

wing festival

Judging by the size of the crowds at the first ever Wing Festival at Legion Park in Hollidaysburg, PA it was a great success. Thousands of Altoona and Blair County area residents showed up to taste the delicious wings from area vedors like; Hotel Belmar, Pellegrines, Cobras Lounge, and the Hollidaysburg American Legion.

The Wing Festival at Hollidaysburg Legion Park is operated by the Hollidaysburg American Legion Post 21st District. The 2nd Annual Wing Festival will be held every Thursday July 11, 2013 to Aug. 15, 2013 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. Wing vendors from various area taverns and restaurants will be selling wings of many different flavors at this years event. There will also be Funnel Cake, Lemonade, Ice Cream, Hot Dog, French Fry, and Sausage Vendors at this years Wing Festival. This year the American Legion has built three 30 x 60 Pavillions to house the Hollidaysburg Wing Festival. Last year tents were rented for the event making it a weather permitting event, plus the cost to rent the tents was very expensive. The American Legion decided to build these pavillions allowing for a more stable structure for the wing festival, plus giving the Blair County community access to renting the pavillions for different events.

The County Spot Directories team made a little holiday roadtrip this year and of course took advantage of the opportunity to collect more photos for our growing directory sites. Our travels this time found us in Granville and Vance County in North Carolina. We spent some time visiting some nice little towns in the Granville County area on a quick tour this time. We made quick stops in Creedmore, Butner, and Oxford in Granville County and also took a quick look at Henderson in Vance County. It was a nice trip but we're sure to return for a more thorough look as we already found a bunch of great little things to check out in that area. We did make a stop at a Confederate cemetery outside of Kittrell in Vance County when we caught the sign along the road.

We'll be adding photos soon at and plans are already underway to get the Vance County, NC site up and running! kittrell

Looks like we'll be doing a lot of research to find the out of the way historical sites we'll need to visit for the next trip for VanceCountyBusiness and GranvilleCountyBusiness County Spot Directories!



Now we're back in central PA and much to our dismay the return of winter weather! Snow is pilling up
