4th of July Olde Time Celebration in Cary, North Carolina

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Happy 4th of July!

Every 4th of July, the award winning town of Cary, North Carolina hosts their annual Independance Day Olde Time Celebration.

This year will be no exception as many events are planned to make this year's celebration even better!

The day's events, which will be held at the Fred G. Bond Metro Park, start off with a parent/ child fishing tournament and include the, always fun, "Parade in the Park", a hula hoop contest, a watermelon seed spitting contest and music will be performed by the Cary Town Band. Other contests and events continue at the park throughout the day.

For those who enjoy bicycling, the 15th annual Spin Cycle 4th of July Firecracker 100k and 50K Cycling Ride to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society will run throughout the day as well.

View the full schedule of the day's events.

And don't forget to head on over to the Koka Booth Amphitheatre as the sun begins to go set and watch the fireworks show. Gates open at 3 and there is a full schedule of events planned. Lawn seating is FREE!

The weather is predicted to be hot, but no rain is forecast! So stop on by to help celebrate America's birthday. Once you're here, you'll discover why I've been proud to call this little patch of America, home!

So, if not hula-hooping, I'm guessing that you are competing in the watermelon seed spitting contest ? Craig, I do like what you do with photoshop! I hope you wear your crown to the Fourth of July festivities, have a good one and congrats on this featured post!
