Seven O’Clock Swing – The Seven O’Clock series in downtown Cary is like a big block party – the streets are closed, the merchants stay open late, there’s food, music and dancing. Yes, dancing in the streets. This week features the NC Revelers Orchestra, plus some dance lessons. It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing. 7:00 in downtown Cary; free.
