If you talk about "lazy days" almost anywhere else in the United States, you'll probably conjure images of hammock time, melting ice cream, or fishing on summer afternoons (as people are doing at Bond Lake in the photo at left).
Say "Lazy Daze" in Cary, however, and that playful substitution of "daze" for "days" is important, because you're referring to s 35-year-old tradition of turning one of the "dog days" of August into an Arts and Crafts festival known all over the southeast. This year's event happens Saturday August 27, and its downtown Cary location is only minutes from my neighborhood (and not just my neighborhood!).
It's a joy to live in a part of North Carolina where homes are affordable, the town has big-city amenities, and the City Council takes fun seriously.
