Have you been to Koka Booth Amphitheatre? They have all kinds of events like Beer, Bourbon and BBQ, Fireworks during the Fourth of July, and so much more. One of my favorite events that they have through out the summer is Movies by Moonlight sponsored by WakeMed. There are still a couple showings left this season such as Despicable Me 2 on August 8th, Captain Phillips on August 9th and a Grease Sing-A-Long on August 23rd.
You can call or check out their website for more information on events that they have going on through out the year. If you are unsure about an event due to weather, you can always call the venue the day of and they will let you know what the plan is, which can be very helpful! Keep an eye out for some events going on later on in the year that might be posted here on Lifestyles of the Triangle NC!

On the last Friday of the month, the Town of Cary allows some shops to stay open late and have a tour come through to experience some beautiful artwork! In 2005, the Cary Art Loop was founded with the mission “To maintain a thriving Arts community through positive partnerships and exchanges between artists and Cary venues. We are committed to the esthetic enhancement of our community“. The main event so to speak is Final Fridays, which take place from 6pm to 9pm. August 29th will be the 9th Anniversary of the Cary Art Loop!!! There will be work from 20 different artists and the enhibit will run through September 23rd. If you are unable to make it to Final Friday, you can still go to the venues during regular hours to see the beautiful pieces of work.

Holly Springs has a large Cultural Center that houses a Performing Arts Theatre, Conference Center, Springs Outdoor Stage, and a Grand Lobby! Oh my I would love to see that last one, there is a large reception area and art exhibition space with an atrium ceiling and serves Green Mountain Coffee at it’s gourmet coffee bar.
The theatre seats 184, the conference room is made up of four multi-purpose rooms for classes and meetings, and there is even an outdoor lawn sitting area for Summer Festivals. The center opened its doors in 2006, and the Holly Springs Community has been around for 20 years, did you know it is also a branch of the Wake County public library system? You can get access to all kinds of things at this place! Have you been before? If not, I recommend stopping through on your next drive!

The Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex holds so many events, that I think for this post I will only be able to scratch the surface of them all! They have a goal to promote cultural arts, artistic awareness and appreciation through concerts, community involvement, and special visual presentations. Inside this beautiful building you will find three galleries, a studio classroom, a theater that seats 150, Full Dressing rooms and a catering kitchen.
It opened its doors in 1912 when Apex only had about 700 people. The first floor actually used to be a Farmers Market and in the back was a jail containing two cells AND the firehouse! Isn’t that insane? All that could be found in this one building. Upstairs held the Mayor’s Office and theater in an Opera Style Seating. This building has a lot of history and if you are ever in the Downtown Apex area, I highly recommend checking out this extraordinary piece of history.
