Each year Cary, NC has quite a few festivities in recognition of the 4th of July holiday. This year is no exception. In a blog earlier today I wrote about the festivities in and around the Triangle.
To be more specific, Cary has a three day celebration starting with fireworks on July 3rd at the Carolina Railhawks soccer game. Fireworks will be set off at the conclusion of the game at SAS Soccer Park in Cary.
Independence Eve Celebration at Sertoma
The first event on July 4th starts with the Cary Youth Theatre called Applause! and the Cary Town Band at 6:30pm at the Sertoma Amphitheatre at Bond Park
So, what will the Applause! Youth theatre group present?
Applause! Cary Youth Theatre presents "Faces of Freedom"
The Applause! Touring Troupe takes patriotism on the road with Cynthia Mercati's funny and touching play "Faces of Freedom" to tell the stories of young immigrants to America who, despite their differences, are united in their search for freedom.
The Cary Town Band follows the Applause! Cary Youth Group at 7:30pm.
Independence Eve Concert with the Cary Town Band
Following "Faces of Freedom", the Cary Town Band will entertain the public with some old time patriotic music.
Independence Day Olde Time Celebration
The Bond Park celebration is an all day family event that starts with a parent-child fishing tournament, followed by a "Parade in the Park," a performance by Applause! Cary Youth Theatre, and a whole host of games and competitions from donut eating to watermelon seed spitting. This is the perfect way to spend the day before heading to Booth Amphitheatre for the Town's fireworks display.
