Events: First Weekend in November


Cary, NC — If you’ve recovered from the shock of realizing the year is almost gone, there’s some good things to do in Cary the first weekend in November according to the Calendar of Events.

Thursday: It’s Halloween

The weather looks pretty good for Halloween – 65° and cloudy.

Sunrise is at 7:37 AM. Sunset is 6:21 PM. The moon is a waning crescent that sets at 4:33 PM, so you won’t see it for trick or treating if the clouds part. It’ll be dark.

See some safety tips from NC-DOT for a safe Halloween.
