July 4th in the Triangle

Cookouts, fireworks, red, white and blue – It’s that time of year again, friends! The 4th of July is quickly approaching, and in a few short weeks, we will be celebrating our independence and the establishment of the good ole U.S. of A. If that’s not a good enough reason to enjoy the sunshine followed by dancing around with sparklers in hand (you know you do it), I don’t know what is.

Whether you’re heading to the coast, mountains or simply staying put this Independence Day, there’s something going on practically everywhere. Need a few ideas? No problem! Below are a few neat things going on in the Triangle this July 4th.

  • Old Fashioned 4th of July, Horace Williams House lawn – Chapel Hill, NC
    A more family focused event, if your crowd’s a fan of lemonade and music, then this event might be just up their ally. From 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, the Village Band will be playing on the front lawn of the Horace Williams House lawn. Word on the street is that Uncle Sam will be making an appearance.
  • The Works, Fayettville Street – Raleigh, NC
    For the first time ever, downtown Raleigh will host the city’s July 4th fireworks. From noon to 10 pm, this isn’t just a night time event. With bounce houses, eating contests and live music, all age groups will appreciate this celebration of independence.
  • 2012 Carrboro July 4th Celebration, Carrboro Town Hall – Carrboro, NC
    Who doesn’t love a little small town tradition? Kicking the day off with a July 4th parade, followed by live music, good food and family-friendly activities, this event is a must for families in the area.
  • Independence Day Celebration Concert, Koka Booth Amphitheater – Cary, NC
    Celebrate the USA the good old fashioned way – with patriotic music and fireworks! Even though this event features both the North Carolina Symphony and the area’s largest firework display, it’s free!
