Early this week, Governor Cooper announced that this Friday, even more of the COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted in the state of North Carolina. You know what that means; as more things begin to open up, there will be more and more events starting to pop up, and I for one, am very excited about it.
There is a chance for rain pretty much all weekend in the Charlotte area, but we’re not letting that kill our vibe. Here is a list of all the events, both in public, and online, that are happening around Charlotte this weekend.
