Our Five Faves

Five events not to miss in November

Posted November 3, 2014

— We are entering the holiday season in the Triangle and we have five events coming up that you won't want to miss this month.

Couture for a Cause (Nov. 15) - This annual fashion show fundraiser at Marbles Kids Museum benefits Activate Good! Local designers are paired with Activate Good’s nonprofit partners to create looks that embody the missions of those organizations. Tickets are $30 before Nov. 14 and $35 (cash only) at the door. 

Santa Paws 5K (Nov. 16) - The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Wake County present this annual holiday themed 5K race that allows dogs and humans to race together and raise money for homeless pets. This is always so much fun!! Things kick off at 8 a.m. at the Dorthea Dix Hospital Campus in Raleigh. Registration is $35 online and $40 on-site the day of. 

Celebration of Women Chefs (Nov. 18) - Head to Coquette Brassiere in North Hills for this dinner presented by the James Beard Foundation and Urban Food Group. It will be five courses plus wine pairings featuring female chefs from the Triangle, Virginian and Washington D.C. Tickets are $155 (tax and gratuity included) for non-members of the James Beard Foundation. 

Winter Wonderland Tree Lighting at Waverly Place (Nov. 21) - Santa and his elves will be on-hand for this annual event that will also include dance groups, live music and face painting. The free event is from 6-8:30 p.m. 

WRAL Raleigh Christmas Parade (Nov. 22) - Yes, the Christmas parade is held before Thanksgiving every year, but it is a great way to get into the spirit of the holiday season a little early. And I'm not just saying that because WRAL is a sponsor and I will be out there chatting it up with Santa. The parade kicks off at 9:40 a.m. in downtown Raleigh and will be televised on WRAL-TV, so you can stay inside and enjoy the parade from your couch too!
