Happy New Year! Even though the holiday season has come and gone, there are lots of great activities in and around the Triangle! Grab your winter hat and throw on your sweater and check out some great winter events!
Winter Wonderland at Bond Park (1/25 & 1/26)
Bond Park in Cary becomes a winter wonderland where an amazing sledding hill will be created with man-made snow, and tubes will be provided so you can catch some speed as you fly downhill.
The amazing sledding hill will be covered with snow made from ground ice by Snow My Yard. The snow is refreshed each morning and between sessions as time allows. Snow tubes are provided — please do not bring your personal sled, disc or tube.
Check out the website for more information.
African American Celebration (1/26)
This event is a kickoff to the statewide observance of Black History Month. This 18th annual event brings together 75+ musicians, storytellers, dancers, chefs, historians, artists and more in downtown Raleigh for a day of pride and celebration of culture.
Triangle Restaurant Week (1/21 to 1/27)
Triangle Restaurant Week is a week-long celebration of culinary excellence throughout the Raleigh area. Participating restaurants offer special three-course menu options and fixed pricing making this the perfect chance to try out a new spot or return to an old favorite.
Krispy Kreme Challenge (2/2)
The Krispy Kreme Challenge is one of the most unique running events in the country. And maybe one of the most unique eating events! The event has been an annual Raleigh tradition since 2004 and draws nearly 8,000 runners.
Participants begin the Challenge at the Memorial Belltower on the campus of NCSU in Raleigh. Runners then travel 2.5 miles through historic downtown Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme located at the intersection of Peace and Person St., where they attempt to consume one dozen original glazed doughnuts. The hardest part of the Challenge awaits them as they run 2.5 miles back to the Memorial Belltower. This is the Krispy Kreme Challenge!
Big Name Acts
Don’t miss out on a huge list of big-name acts set to perform on big stages this winter: Justin Timberlake (1/6), Cher (1/27), Metallica (1/28), Elton John (3/12) and Mumford & Sons (3/17) will all play at the PNC Arena.
