For my family and some of our friends we chose the celebration at the Wake Forest-Rolesville high school last night. The entertainment was stellar with the Band of Oz, the crowd was in awe of the Don Carrington Skydive team and the fireworks were spectacular. It was amazing was $5 per ticket got you! I highly recommend you check it out next year.
Festivities were carried over to today with a festival at Holding Park here in Wake Forest. Referred to as "Art in the Park" there were food vendors, watermelon seed spitting contests, tug-o-wars, sun visor painting, Wake Forest firetrucks for the kids to explore and a demonstration by the Wake Forest Police K-9 unit. Very entertaining and family oriented day.
If you get the chance, check out the Town of Wake Forest website. There is a calendar of events that showcases all that Wake Forest has to offer on a monthly basis. Not too bad for a smaller town - not too bad at all!
Have a very safe evening!
