Are you ready to start 2017 off on the right foot? The holiday hustle and bustle is winding down, but that doesn’t mean life isn’t still interesting and fun in our area. Here are some upcoming events near Bradford that will make the beginning of the New Year an amazing experience!
On January 8 at 10:00 a.m., head to WakeMed Soccer Park for the 2017 Hot Chocolate Run & SPCA Doggie Dash. This run, which includes a 5K, 10K and 1-mile race, collects money for the Wake County SCPA. No matter which length you run, if you finish you will be rewarded with an unlimited amount of hot chocolate in a collectible mug.
Do you want to experience a unique cultural tradition? Head to the Town Hall Campus on January 7 at 1 for the Three Kings Day Parade. This parade signals the end of the Christmas season, a time when the “Three Kings” bring presents to children, and it is an important part of Latino cultures. Come to enjoy the food, dancing and parade paraphernalia of the Latino communities in Cary.
If you missed out on a white Christmas this year, head to Bond Park on January 27 and 28 for Winter Wonderland. The park will pump snow all over the hill across from the Bond Park Community Center, and you can grab a snow tube and go flying down the hill. Stock up on winter wear now so that you are prepared when the hill gets covered in freshly made snow!
If the weather outside is just a little too cool for you, head indoors in The Cary Theater to enjoy showings of classic and modern films for just a few dollars. Several movies are scheduled for the month of January, including Notes on Blindness, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Harry and the Snowman and Rio, among others. Check the schedule and pick a movie you’ve been wanting to see. It’s a perfect way to spend a chilly winter afternoon while still enjoying all of the offerings of Cary.
As you can see, there’s plenty to see and do in Cary, NC in the first part of the year. Make your plans now to enjoy these festivities!
