RALEIGH, N.C. — We have your guide to fun this first weekend in November.
Get ready for a new holiday tradition - The pandemic may keep a lot of public holiday events from taking place this year, and that's why WRAL is so excited to announce a collaboration with the City of Raleigh for a brand new holiday tradition at Dorothea Dix Park. Get details about the first ever Nights of Lights Drive-Thru Light Show and how you can get tickets.
