To end our week of events, we thought it would be good to close things off with Holly Springs! They are having their Fourth of July celebrations the day after the Fourth! On Sunday, July 5th head to Holly Springs for crafts, coloring, corn hole tournaments, music, face paint and so much more! So how does two days of celebrating sound? Fireworks start at 9:15 pm and will last 15 minutes. Below we also have a parking map to help you out.

Fuquay-Varina has different plans for the Fourth of July celebrations by having their celebrations on the 3rd! Come out to Fuquay to experience food trucks, musical acts, and an epic fireworks display! Gates open at 6:00 pm, then maybe the next day you can head over to Cary or Raleigh for even more Independence Day Celebrations. Keep an eye out the rest of the week for more coming your way this weekend. Where will you be found on the Fourth?
Moving along with our week of July 4th events, Raleigh has started a great tradition on Fayetteville Street. This Saturday from Noon to 11:00 pm come out for a huge free event called The ‘Works! There are beer/wine tents, rides for the kids, live music and so much more. The fireworks start around 9:30 pm over The Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.
No matter where you are, you can try different food trucks in preparation for the fireworks that evening. Make a whole day out of it! Maybe I’ll see you on Fayetteville Street. 🙂
On December 10th, it was announced that the North Carolina Museum of Art would be undergoing a new 164-acre project thanks to an anonymous donation! The project is a park campus that will include greenways, bike trails, and new art of course. The vision for this project started long ago in the late ’80s and is finally able to come to life now! More information can be found in the article linked below.

One weakness of many in the mornings is a good cup of coffee! I have highlighted Bed and Breakfast locations, Parks, etc. in the past, but I think this might be the most important week!
Thanks A Latte is such a cute name, that it stood out right away to me. It is a Coffee and Gift Boutique, featuring Larry’s Beans drip coffee and gifts from Capri Blue and Mudpie.
