Ready for the 3 day weekend?
We’ve reached a resemblance of normal as the vaccine continues to roll out and mask mandates are adjusted, so looks like memorial day won’t be looking so bad this year. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite parties, deals, and events happening all weekend long, so check ’em out below and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
1. U.S. White Raft National Memorial Day
Enjoy Memorial Day weekend with a Saturday morning race through the Whitewater Center’s trail system. Choose from 5 and 8 mile options, then continue the day with the calm flatwater of the Catawba River while participating in a yoga practice on top of stand-up paddle boards. Then, finish off the weekend with live music and fireworks on Sunday evening. Tickets are free, and you can find out more information here.
Where: 5000 Whitewater Center Parkway Charlotte, NC 28214

Carowinds is putting on another fantastic fireworks show for their Celebrate America Fireworks Show on May 29 and 30, and July 3 and 4, at 8:45 p.m. Reservations are required, and for more information, check out their official website.
Where: 14523 Carowinds Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28273
In partnership with Meshugganah, the pop up serving delicious homemade Jewish food, there will be a Jewish cookout at Resident Culture Brewing on Saturday May 29th. They’re hoping to serve up delicious eats from 1-5pm, but if they sell out, they sell out, so you’ll probably want to get there early.

4. Charlotte Thunder Game
The Charlotte Thunder is having a strong year so far, and it’s not over yet! Their game on Saturday, May 29th, at 7:30 p.m. is their second to last regular season game, so you won’t want to miss it. Tickets are only $15 or $20, if they’re still available that is. Shop for tickets here.
