Charlotte, NC – February 1 – 15, 2015 Events – Charlotte is for Lovers

By David Boling

February in Charlotte is known for it’s nail biting cold. Luckily enough, this February seems to have a milder outlook. No better reason to get out and experience the culture that Uptown offers. With Valentine’s Day coming, it’s a great way to romance your love.

Not in this list, but well worth a mention, is the Firebird exhibit at Bechtler. It’s been running since September, but ends on February 18th. The Bechtler is celebrating Charlotte’s 5 year love affair with this iconic piece of art!
