Fox Carolina Town Takeover in Pendleton SC
Pendleton SC Shined for the Fox Carolina Town Takeover
Seven O'clock in the morning is mighty early to expect an enthusiastic crowd but that is exactly what Fox Carolina got when they came to Pendleton SC on November 11, 2010 for the Fox Carolina Town Takeover. The weather was perfect and excitement filled the air as the crowd gathered carrying signs supporting their school or organization and most importantly, our Veterans.It was a day for Pendleton to shine live before a TV audience and shine we did!Fox Carolina's Town Takeover Series has been a big hit as they choose different towns to be the site of their early Thursday morning show. Toccoa, Georgia was the one before Pendleton and Spartanburg, SC will be the next one. Co-Anchors Margaret Burnquist and Cody Alcorn make the Town Takeover so much fun for everyone!Special thanks to everyone who shared their pictures for this page.It sure would be fun for Fox Carolina to return to Pendleton! I sure hope they will!
"I was so impressed by the Pendleton pride I saw and the warmth of the people I met. You have a truly wonderful community and I think that's exactly what came across on tv!Thanks for a fantastic Takeover!"— Margaret Burnquist, Fox Carolina Morning Anchor
Cody enjoyed riding around on a Segway - Now, I think that is a great way to travel
I am not sure this is one like the one that Cody was riding but it is similar. I think the one he was riding belonged to Subway but I am not sure. All I know is that he was having a grand time with it and it sure looked like fun! I had never seen one and thought I would like to have one, too.

Pendleton's Town Takeover brought me back to my small town roots. You can't beat that small town charisma and southern generosity! In my opinon it was one of our best town takeovers of 2010! By the way..hats off to '1826 On The Green' and the 'Village Baker!'Cody Alcorn,Fox Carolina Morning Anchor
