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. 🙂
This upcoming weekend is the Fourth of July! There are so many events happening in the Triangle that I figured you would like to have a little guide to help you out. Today we are focusing on the Cary, NC events going on this weekend. Keep an eye out the rest of this week for all the other town events.
Bond Park is having Fourth of July events including a fishing tournament, parade decorations, and family contests! Bring everyone along to participate in Watermelon Eating, Sidewalk decorating and so much more. Afterwards head on over to Koka Booth for kids activities, music and fireworks! There are so many options to choose from. Check out the link we have below for more specific details to plan for your weekend.

This year will be the fourth annual Fit Cary event, offering several free options to the public to help get into a fit routine this Spring. The entire month of Cary is “Fit Cary” Month, so keep track of upcoming events in the area to attend with Family and Friends! In addition to the fitness events, Cary is doing a BINGO game in which participants complete a health/wellness activity to receive a stamp. More information and the card itself can be found at the site listed below.

The Raleigh Convention Center was built back in 2008 and has already housed hundreds of high school graduates, as well as been the location for several major conventions in the area. It can hold an event for anywhere from 50 to 5,000 people! It is about 500,000 sq ft including Ballrooms, Exhibition Hall, a Lobby at Street Level, and in close proximity to hotels, Red Hat Amphitheater and Duke Energy Center.
One of the major Conventions that they host is Animazement! Last year there were over ten thousand people who attended! You may have noticed a ton of people in costume walking around Raleigh during Memorial Weekend. They were cosplay attendees going to the convention.

Typically we have a different theme that runs through out the week, previously with ideas such as Local Breweries, Bed and Breakfast, etc. Last week we went over places in the Cary area for you to check out. This week we are going to be posting about places in Raleigh! Now, there are a lot and we cannot hit all of them, but we will do our best to hit on the major locations. We have posted about the first Bed and Breakfast in Wake County being in Raleigh, as well as some breweries. Look through the right hand menu for more categories! There is a lot to Raleigh, from the day time events to the night life.
If you have a small business, event coming up, or even just want to talk about Real Estate in the Triangle NC then please feel free to contact me!
The C Tran service is a great resource for our Senior Citizens in Cary, but it is not limited to them alone. Anyone can pick up the C Tran at one of their many stops around Cary, aside from Sundays, that is the only day they do not run. You can either do the fixed route or door to door option for taking the C Tran. Door to Door is great for when you have a Doctor’s Appointment somewhere, check their page for more information on the fees to going to other areas in the Triangle. I have never taken the C Tran myself, but my friends who have said they wish they had done so sooner! It is also a safe travel method for my daughters when they go to the mall and want to spend a day shopping! A friend’s Great Aunt uses it as their main transportation to the Doctor and for going to Mass on weekends. We always see the C Tran outside of St. Michael’s and Cary Towne Center.
Have you taken the C Tran before? What was your experience like?
