Rain or shine, Sunday is Carrboro Day

Whether it’s held indoors at the Century Center or outside at Town Commons, Sunday May 6 is Carrboro Day — the annual toast to the town sponsored by the Carrboro Recreation & Parks Department.

The music starts at 12:30 p.m. and runs along with the festivities until 6 p.m. In addition to music, storytelling and poetry readings, the Carrboro Community Garden Club is hosting a plant exchange from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. and the Friends of the Library are holding a bake goods sale along with a used book sale from 12:45 to 5 p.m.

There’ll also be firehouse tours from 12:30 to 6 p.m. and displays by the town’s Public Works department. For part of the day, events will be broadcast live on WCOM.

Organizers will make the call on the weather around 11 p.m. If the event is moved inside to the Century Center, the news will be broadcast on WCHL and WCOM and posted on the town’s website and at Carrboro.com.

    The copy on your posting says: Sunday, May 6th. I assume you mean May 3rd.

    I think you’re reading last year’s story.
    We’ll be posting the schedule and more later today.
