Weekend in Cary: July 4 – 7, 2013

weekend-in-cary-july-4Cary, NC – It’s a lazy kind of mid-summer weekend in Cary, tagged onto the July 4th holiday. But still, this is Cary, with a handful of world-class events to keep those not otherwise occupied amused and entertained.

Thursday, July 4, 2013

Technically, Thursday is part of the weekend, what with the national holiday and all. And most people get Friday off as well. So it’s a four day weekend!

Lots going on for July 4th, of course, right here in Cary and across the Triangle. Read all about it in July 4th in Cary and Beyond.
