The Heat Can’t Stop the QC! – Charlotte, NC Events – June 26th – July 2nd, 2015

By David Boling

If there is one thing about Charlotte I will swear to, then it is that we don’t let the weather stop us. I’ve seen crowds in the rain, scores of children in the snow, and with this heat you’ll see flocks of Charlotteans in the streets. Grab the sunscreen and a bottle of water before you leave the house and enjoy your city!

Leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you thought of these great Charlotte events, or if you have an event you’d like us to bookmark.
