Andy Griffith to Attend Maybery Days

Andy Griffith is coming to Mayberry Days in September this year, something for which fans of “The Andy Griffith Show” have fondly hoped for years. Griffith is coming for the TV Land Landmark statue to be dedicated in his hometown of Mt. Airy, NC, one of the inspirations for Mayberry.
It is indeed fitting and proper that Mount Airy be home to this special TV Land Landmark tribute to “The Andy Griffith Show.” Even before the other TV Land Landmark to TAGS (dedicated in Raleigh last October) was repeatedly vandalized, many fans, while holding no malice toward Raleigh, have fervently wished that perhaps a “second inauguration” of TV Land’s statuary tribute to Mayberry would happen in Mount Airy, Andy’s hometown.
As of now, the plan is for Andy and officials from TV Land and Mount Airy to unveil the statue at 9:30 a.m. on Friday (Sept. 24) during Mayberry Days at the city’s brand new amphitheater (across the street from the Andy Griffith Playhouse).
It has not been determined at this point whether Andy and his wife, Cindi, will be able to attend other portions of Mayberry Days. Of course, we all hope
that they can, but as Andy Taylor told Gomer about his date with Mary Grace, “Don’t over-expect.”

As if it weren’t enough that Andy and Cindi Griffith will be attending Mayberry Days, there’s much more in store. Also expected to be on hand are–hang
on to your hats–two Darling boys (Doug Dillard and Rodney Dillard) and their TV sister, Maggie Peterson Mancuso. More TAGS favorites scheduled are composer Earle Hagen, Betty Lynn, LeRoy “Mack” McNees and perennial Mayberry Days favorite George Spence.
