Thousands still flock to NC "Hunger Games" forest
HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Thousands of people are still coming to visit the western North Carolina forest where the movie "The Hunger Games" was filmed.
The Times-News of Hendersonville reported (http://bit.ly/SjO33X ) the number of visitors this year to DuPont State Recreational Forest reached 327,000 by the end of October. Attendance last year was about 250,000.
Forest officials say there are no signs the surge of visitors will end anytime soon.
