RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The threat of storms loomed all day… but one of the Triangle’s biggest Independence Day celebrations went off with no problems.
The ‘works’ in Raleigh drew thousands of people to Fayetteville Street.
It was an all-day party starting at noon. Kids were able to play games and go on rides.
There were performances along the street and even some history lessons around the Capitol Building.
“It’s great, man. Raleigh just has everything. It’s local. It’s got bluegrass to indie,” said Corey Sadler, who celebrated at the event.
Bands also played at four different locations downtown all day long.
“I’ve never seen so many people down here. You know, the streets are packed. A lot of families. It’s a lot of fun,” said Jacob Munster.
