About DISH Cable TV in Benson

You might be tempted to think of Benson, North Carolina, as the place you stop for gas before you leave the Raleigh metro, visions of seagulls and beach sunrise walks in your head. Myrtle Beach is awesome—credit where credit is due—but Benson brings more to the table than Love's Truck Stop.

At least 60,000 people already know that about Benson—that's how many visitors and locals mill through town during the annual Mule Days festival, briefly increasing the population by about twelve times its normal size. The three-day event includes carnival rides, artwork, and a parade, as well as golfing, bluegrass performances, and of course, the mule judging and racing. Another event that puts Benson on the map is the State Annual Singing Convention, one of the oldest "gospel sings" in the nation (around since 1921). Every summer, about 50 gospel music groups consisting of pros, community choirs, and even families, compete for the Grand Champion Trophy while residents and visitors listen on the lawn.

When there's not a major event happening, Benson's charm turns back into something primarily for the residents to enjoy. All nights of the week, people meet at local restaurants and bars such as Morgan's, Lazy K, and El Charro, while others prep for their weekend barbecues by stocking up on meats and produce at McLamb's or Carlie's. On weekends, people head to the flea market mall for deals or the pool to entertain the kids. And anytime they're ready to wind down, they might flip on DISH TV to watch Big Brother, American Idol, or Riverdale. Feel like making yourself at home here yet?
