Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Labor Day Happenings Around Charlotte

August 30th, 2007 Listed Under: Things To Do Charlotte

What a lineup! What a weekend! Take the family to Matthews Alive–they take over downtown Matthews Friday night through Labor Day Monday for their annual celebration of Matthews, NC. It’s a giant family block party, with rides, music, and food. Artists from all over the Carolina come to display their wares. Custom handmade jewelry, pottery, leather works, woodwork- crafts of all shapes and sizes, art from the coast and mountains. Park at Matthews United Methodist Church. We’ll be going in our new red toy, hope to see you there!

We’ve also got a reservation at National White Water Center– 6 of us will be rafting at 5 on Sunday. You start easy, and learn paddle basics from your guide. After a few runs on the training grounds, you are ready for the class IV rapids out in front of the restaurant. This is a wet roller coaster ride and a workout as you make about 6-8 runs through the course. We’ll all come back a little sore, with great stories ready for a beer and dinner.

Next weekend we are off to the Greek Festival on East Blvd–and ALL Charlotte Museums offer free admittance next Saturday- by all means get to the Levine Museum of the New South, the Arts and Crafts Museum, and the excellent Mint Museum of Art.

    Your site always has the latest and greatest information about Charlotte and the Surrounding areas. I always like to acknowledge when something is great, and I can only imagine the time it takes for you to put all this together, so I say to you, Great Job, and thanks – everytime I come to your site, I learn something new about the city I have called home for 39 years.–john
