Leaving the State Fairgrounds on the other hand was a complete disaster. I was parked over by the Art Museum and it took me well over an hour and a half.
I enjoy the fireworks at the State Fairgrounds, but we too spent well over an hour getting out of the parking lot the last time we went.

Best to plan to relax in the car a little...

We have gone to the Fairgrounds for the fireworks... it has been a year or two, but last time we went there was activities and food in the area where the flea market usually is. We took 3-4 carloads of people and tailgated together. We hung out after the fireworks for about 30 minutes and then getting out was easy!

Other 7/4 activities:
Fireworks at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill(~9pm?); Triangle Brass Band concert at Meadowmont community center (4pm); More Town of Cary activities at Town of Cary Independence Day Events (http://www.townofcary.org/depts/prdept/events/inddayevents.htm - broken link)

Yes, there is a huge 4th of July celebration at the Wake Forest high school stadium. Something like $5.00 admission... there is usually some type of musical entertainment starting early in the afternoon... Check out wakeforestnc.gov - i'm sure there is information about it somewhere on the site..... I think it sometimes happens july 3rd or july 5th - depending how the holiday falls...

If I were to go to the beach for the 4th of July, where are the best places to go?
