Out & About was busy this weekend! 

Here's a roundup of some of our weekend coverage: 

Downtown Raleigh's City Plaza was packed Saturday for Brewgaloo. The craft beer celebration also included local music and food trucks. With so many people in line for beer and food, I could definitely see the event moving to an even bigger venue next year.

WRAL's Sloane Heffernan competed in the Dancing like the Stars competition at the Southern Women's show on Saturday. She ended up taking second place behind USA Baseball's Jake Fehling, who shook his booty to "I'm Sexy and I Know It."

And finally, we also hit the North Hills Farmer's Market.
