MOUNT AIRY, N.C. – Many of us grew up watching Barbara Eden. She’s known around the world as the adorable genie in the hit TV show “I Dream of Jeannie.”

Eden is in Mount Airy this weekend for the 26th annual Mayberry Days festival, which lasts until Sunday in Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy.

Clint Howard is also in attendance. He is the younger brother of actor and director Ron Howard and has hundreds of acting credits.

The multi-day festival draws tens of thousands from across the U.S. and pays tribute to Mount Airy’s role as inspiration for the idyllic town of Mayberry on The Andy Griffith Show.

FOX8’s Shelly Roupas got a chance to chat with Eden and Howard on Friday. Check it out in the video above.
