A Few Things to do in NC this Weekend. June 23-June25, 2017

With Tropical Storm Cindy hitting the golf coast I am wondering if we will get some of the rain bands here on the east coast.  Lets check the local forecast for the RTP area.  Does not look as bad as I expected.

Lets take a look at a few things to do in NC this weekend...                                                             *Looks like a lot of great bands at Rock the Cape on Hatteras Island.  This is a week long event starting June 17-June 24.
