Annual Belk Bowl draws thousands to Uptown Charlotte

 “Both of my parents went to UVA and that’s the school I plan on going to. It’s a pretty good school,” said 14-year-old Owen Belfield.

No matter the school that walked away victorious, the Belk Bowl was a day about carrying on family tradition.

It’s unclear how many people officially traveled from out of town for the Belk Bowl, but many families told tell FOX 46 Charlotte they arrived Friday night and plan to stay through the new year.
