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!
