Hi guys...

DH and I will be visiting Charlotte June 2 - June 6 (Saturday thru Wednesday). Does anyone know of any art festivals, food festivals, symphony-in-the-park-type-functions, or anything else going on anywhere in or around Charlotte during that time, especially Saturday or Sunday afternoon/night? No biggie, if there isn't anything going on...we have plenty to see and do already!

We looked online, and couldn't find anything, so we just thought we'd ask to see if maybe one of you would know if something interesting is going on that week. Thanks!

On Saturday night June 2nd, there's a free concert in Kannapolis, at the Village Park, 7:00 PM, I believe it's a country act of some sort.
