The Ku Klux Klan is set to hold one of its monthly rallies and cross-burnings in northern Iredell County this weekend.
The rally is set for 2 p.m. Saturday in Harmony, according to the website for the Eden-based Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. A “cross-lighting” will be held at dusk, the website stated.
It will be held at a private, undisclosed residence, according to media reports.
The rallies are not always held in Iredell. According to the website, similar events are planned next in Maryland and West Virginia.
The Statesville Record & Landmark reported that the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office is aware of the event. But Capt. Darren Campbell told the newspaper that because the event is being held on private property, deputies won’t be there unless their presence is requested or a crime is committed.
