Weekend at a Glance
There’s plenty of anniversaries, celebrations and outdoor events to keep your mind off the rain this weekend!
By Hannah Lee
The Alliance for Historic Hillsborough presents the 75th Anniversary of D-Day Remembrance Event to honor those that fought and the many people who lost their lives in the battle. The event will feature a talk from Bill Melega, a nationally recognized history educator. There will also be interactive displays and a candle lighting with a live performance of Taps. Remembering D-Day is free and open to the public, and will take place at the Hillsborough Visitors Center at 7pm.
Bring an instrument and join in on a jam circle with Pick Filet for Meadowmont’s 20th anniversary – or just stop by to listen! The band will provide easy music to read, play and sing. There will also be free cupcakes from Cafe Carolina & Bakery for the first 100 guests.
Celebrate the 80th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz” by bringing your blankets and chairs for a screening at the Southern Village Green. There will be an introduction by Peter Guzzardi, local author of “Emeralds of Oz: Life Lessons From Over the Rainbow” and a performance by the Estes Hills Elementary’s Drama Department 45 minutes prior to showtime.
Do brunch the right way and take your family to Botanist and Barrel for a pop up bagel brunch with Everything Bagels from Durham. And if it’s not already inferred, there’s also going to be cider and cidermosas for parents who need it!
