Weekend Events: Live Music, Shopping & Comedy with Beer

Cary, NC — Before we sign off for the next few days on CaryCitizen, here is a roundup of a few events happening in Cary this Thanksgiving weekend.

A couple of all-weekend-long ideas for getting out of the house with visiting family are to enjoy the NC Chinese Lantern Festival at Koka Booth Amphitheatre or to walk along Academy street to enjoy the lit archways, trees, a few lanterns (and more that continues to pop up) for residents to enjoy!
