So much to do, so little time. I’m not even talking about mundane household tasks, laundry, dishes, vacuuming. I’m talking the good stuff, dancing, festivals, and movie nights. #firstworldproblems, right?

This is why I love the Town of Cary though- there is always something fun going on for families, couples, and healthy-areobically-advanced-tight-bootie ladies.

Tonight, the Party Nuts will be opening Waverly Place’s Wind Down Wednesdays from 6-9pm on the Promenade. The “Nuts” are a 4-man band from the Triangle who do it all: Motown, 70s Funk, Oldies. I love me some mood music when I’m munching on my Menchies. Yum!

Thursday Night, from 6:30-9pm Koka Booth Ampitheatre will be partnering with Lifetime Fitness to host a Zumba Jam to raise money for Augie’s Quest and the MDA in their fight against ALS.  The suggested donation for those looking to shake it (12 years and up) is $10, (worth every dime).

Friday Night, the Town of Cary will be continuing with its Starlight Concert Series at the Page-Walker History Center, Downtown Cary. From 7-8pm, you can bring your lawn chair, a picnic, and jam to Jenny la Voz and the Grupo Sarengue. This is a great, free concert to kick off Saturday’s

The Ritmo Latino is a free festival showcasing Latino music, dance, and arts. The festival will be held Downtown Cary, from noon til 7pm.  At which point, you can once again bring a lawn chair, picnic, blanket, and enjoy your favorite latin pussy cat at

Koka Booth will be starting it’s Movies by Moonlight Series by showing Puss in Boots.  Cost is $3/adult but kids 12 and under are free.

Sunday, May 20 also has a great event for families..and it’s all for a great cause.Swim Across America will be hosting a Swimming the Distance for a Cancer Cure.

From 1-6pm at the Triangle Aquatic Center (275 Convention Drive, behind the Cary Mall), anyone can take part in swimming, attending FREE OLYMPIAN swim clinics (hosted by former Olympic swim team members) and a silent auction. Those who’ve only got their land legs can also attend an OLYMPIAN running clinic hosted by a former Olympic sprinter as well. Don’t worry- the swimming itself is not a race and it’s not timed. Just looking to “make waves” against cancer! Suggested donations are only $25/participant.
