Here's a fun start of summer break activity for all the soccer players and fans out there:

WakeMed Soccer Park will host a free World Cup Watch Party for the match between the U.S. Men's National Team and Ghana in the FIFA World Cup in Brazil on Monday. Gates open at 4 p.m. with a McDonald's Fan Fest that includes Brazilian dancers, soccer jugglers and other activities. A full concessions menu will be available for sale.

The game starts at 6 p.m. The match will be displayed on the park's new 38-foot-by-20-foot videoboard in the south endzone. It's free and open to the public.

The RailHawks, town of Cary and Backyard Bistro are hosting the watch party.

    If i wasnt already going to another watch party, would have gone- sounds like fun. Its always more fun to watch a game with friends and a crowd all rooting for same team. When Duke or UNC make it to title games- we watch the games in a bar with lots of like minded folks- share the highs, share the lows- when ya scream at the ref's bad call at home, you scare the dog and the neighbors think there is a domestic fight going on, scream at the ref's call in a bar or crowd- odds are someone else is screaming with you!

    not EVERYONE has HD, and not everyone would prefer to watch at home.

    The Brazilian dancers sound intriguing and all, but I've never understood the appeal of going to a stadium to watch a match on a TV when you're got HD at home.
