Posted July 1, 2011

If you are still undecided about what to do this weekend to celebrate the July 4th holiday, take a look at all these fun AND free activities to enjoy!  Sarah, at Go Ask Mom has put together a long list of frugal fun for the 4th - click on the link in the box to the left for all the details.

You will find fireworks at the State Fairgrounds, in Wake Forest, Cary, Apex, 40/42 area, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Morrisville, and Durham. There are plenty of other weekend activities as well so be sure to check out Sarah's fabulous list!

We will be enjoying a cookout with lots of family and then watching the fireworks near our house. Should be a fun, frugal and HOT holiday!

What are you doing for July 4th this year?

    Holly Springs fireworks/festivities are held July 5th, so we get a second chance if all the other activities are rained out!

    Lillington Festival in the Park. One of the best fireworks displays (if not the best) in the State. Great food, music, and rides and games for the kids. Looking forward to it!!
