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.

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. 🙂
Did you know that every eight years your property values get reassessed? This process will bring tax values up to date for those properties available on the open market. You can get more information about the assessment, as well as information from past evaluations by clicking on the link below!
Sweet Leaf Cafe is more than just a coffee shop, it is also a Mediterranean twist with some healthy food options. You can get a delicious wrap, salad, or some fresh pastries to go with a hot cup of Joe. This would be perfect for a lunch date during your lunch break at work, or someplace to head in between shopping trips in Fuquay Varina. There are so many great local Coffee Shops in the Triangle Area that I cannot possibly tell you all of them! Comment with your favorite and maybe we’ll feature it next!

You can catch the NC State Men’s Basketball team or the Carolina Hurricanes playing a game at the PNC Arena located in Raleigh, NC. If you ever go to a Hurricanes game on the same evening that there was a Basketball game, I highly recommend you show up to the arena early! The staff works really fast in transforming the court back into the icy atmosphere needed for the later game. I have seen it happen a couple times and I cannot get over how cool it is to watch!
The PNC Arena came to Raleigh in October 1999 along with the move of the Hartford Whalers Hockey Team to NC. It can hold over 19,000 fans for a basketball game or a little over 18,000 during ice hockey games. In addition to housing these teams, you can catch a number of LIVE shows in the arena from musical performances (such as Brantley Gilbert coming in October) to ice performances like the anticipated Frozen on Ice. Check out the link below for a schedule of events coming to the PNC Arena in Fall 2014 through 2015!

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!
