Cary Lazy Daze 2007

Town of Cary 31st Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival 2007

The Town of Cary’s 31st Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival was held this past weekend in Downtown Cary, NC. Despite the oppressive heat this year, setting a new record high of 99 degrees, it was a great event. This was my first time attending the event, and we were very impressed by the logistical organization of the festival. Parking was easily accessible, there were frequent shuttles from the parking lots to the actual event, and there were plenty of volunteers to make sure any questions were answered.

We will have to wait for the official numbers to be announced, but I would estimate there were at least 40 to 50 thousand people that came out to see the wonderful crafts the artisans brought from all over the state, enjoy food that helps to sponsor local schools and charities, and hear some great music. The weather was a bit torrid, and we ended up leaving earlier than we had hoped, but my wife still managed to find a few treasures that we simply couldn’t live without. We weren’t the only ones that had trouble with the heat this year. According to an article by NBC News 17, the Cary EMS was kept busy treating several people for heat related incidents.

All in all, the event was deemed a success. I suppose anytime you can get that many people out of their air-conditioned homes and into the street during a heat wave to mingle and have a good time, that is a testament to the success of the festival. We are very much looking forward to next year, and hope that the weather will be more tolerable, so we can relax and enjoy the last few Lazy Daze of summer.

"In 2008, I was working for a big national Real Estate company. A client of mine who I'd just helped purchase a home two months before got laid off from his job and wanted to quickly list her home. When I charged the client less to help her out, the firm was very upset with my decision. I opened Raleigh Cary Realty shortly thereafter, with a vision that we'd always have the flexibility to do the right thing for our clients, no matter what." -George Wilson
