March with the Band, Dance with the Indians

Hi <<First Name>>,

Like last week, again two events that are close in time and location, but this time you can combine them very well: Watch the Saturday Christmas parade, and just as you get cold, head over to the History Museum and celebrate with members from North Carolina's American Native population.

Happy weekend!

(American Indian Heritage Celebration Sat 11-4)

The NC Museum of History honors the American Natives of North Carolina with the annual celebration of American Indian Heritage. Did you know for example that Miss NC 2013 is an American Native? That NC has the largest Indian population of any state in the East? Or that there are eight recognized tribes in our state? Learn these and more facts, and have some direct encounters with the music, dances and cooking - if you're lucky you might even run into Miss North Carolina Johna Edmonds. The event is taking place in the NC Museum of History and on the Bicentennial Plaza right outside the museum, and lasts from 11am to 4pm. Thanks to my friend J. for making me aware of this event!

Christmas Parade (Sat 10-12)

Correct, it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but we're having the Christmas Parade. On its traditional route down Hillsborough and then Fayetteville Street, the Christmas Parade can be relied upon to warm hearts and freeze toes. Some people arrive early and brave the cold and drizzly weather, while other come later and only admire the tallest balloons floating over the heads of people standing in front of them. The parade is from 10:00-12:00, and is taking place for the 69th time. (And if you don't like rain - the parade is also broadcast live on WRAL.)
