UNC and N.C. State will close out the regular baseball season together, starting at 6 p.m. at Boshamer Stadium. Come support the Tar Heels for this three-game series that runs until Saturday. The Wolfpack has a chance from keeping Chapel Hill from winning the division.


The Chapel Hill Service League is hosting a family movie night on the Southern Village Green with Disney Pixar’s WALL-E. There will be craft activities with The Scrap Exchange at 6:30 p.m. and a performance by The Bouncing Bulldogs at 7 p.m. Admission is free but donations are appreciated and will be used to help the Service League’s projects, including the Christmas House which annually serves over 800 local children.


At Rock the Baby Family Festival, a family-friendly event put on by La Leche League, there will be bounce houses, food trucks, crafts for kids and live music from America’s Got Talent contestant Adam Lee Decker at Carrboro Town Commons.


Take in the spring weather during Bloom Fest, an arts, performance and floral festival at 140 West Plaza. Highlights include Blawesome’s 20-foot Carolina-themed floral archway, a live monarch butterfly garden, a performance from Paperhand Puppet Intervention and an exhibit of themed miniature gardens.
