Weekend Events: Downtown Party, Yoga & The Harlem Globetrotters

Cary, NC — The good news about this weekend’s events in Cary is that most are either indoors with air conditioning or outside in the mornings and evenings. Anyone else tired of this muggy heat?

Plus, there is one more chance to get in on the fun of a downtown Cary street party this Saturday! Here’s the full lineup.

Yoga & Live Music

1-2 PM | Bond Brothers Eastside | Reservation & $10 required at the door

Combine yoga, ambient music and a beer at the end to celebrate and you’ve got a Saturday afternoon at Bond Brothers Eastside. As part of the programming at this recently opened location, the staff puts together ticketed music shows, jam sessions and now, yoga classes too.

Instructor Loretta Jo Schlatzer will be leading the class and accompanying her instruction will be the musical stylings of Brandon Murphy, who creates original improvisational soundscapes to enhance the experience.

Class participants are asked to pay a $10 donation at the door per person for a Bond Bros $5 gift card and the class. But — space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot online.
