Late Summer Happenings and Day Trips from LKN

Day Trips from LKN

Soon all the local students will return to school and time will be limited for anything other than studies, music lessons, sports practice and other extra-curricular activities.  Now is a great time for checking out the end of summer local events and day trips from LKN.

Day Trips from LKN

August 13  10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Art in the Park
Blowing Park, NC

This one is a perennial favorite.  You can never go wrong taking a trip of any kind to Blowing Rock.  We have long lost count of how many day trips from LKN we have taken to Blowing Rock. There is an eclectic offering of one of a kind art work.  The shops that line the main street are treasure troves and there are great restaurants too.

 

 

August 20        5:30 – 8:30 PM
Festival of Food Trucks
Downtown Mooresville, NC

The rain dampened this event a little last month, but hey, that’s summer.  There are multiple cuisines and a variety of craft beers available.

August 20       4:00 PM -9:30 PM
Old Town Cornelius Jazz Festival
Smithville Park, Cornelius, NC

We keep meaning to check this out.  Maybe one of these times.

 

August 20        6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
The Tillers in Concert
Cool Park, Todd, NC

We know Todd best for catching a ride to the Virginia Creeper Trail and biking down hill all the way. The Todd General Store is a delightful step back in time and the music is free.

August 21     6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Concert on the Green
Town Green, Davidson, NC

Always a great way to cap off a summer weekend.

August 27     3:00 PM  – 7:00 PM
High Country Beer Fest
High Country Fairgrounds, Boone, NC

Food vendors, live music, seminars and did we mention beer?  Over 50 craft beers from around the region and world.

 

We took our first trip to Pilot Mountain earlier this month.  Try it, you might like it!!!

It was definitely hot this month.  Here’s hoping that September will be a tad bit more comfortable. Be sure to take your lawn chairs so you can sit and enjoy the music. Leave your pets at home, they are not allowed.

 

September 4        6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

We love events that repeat.  Always a different artist though.

Did we say we love repeating events?

September 17      2:00 PM – 8:00  PM
‘Tawba Walk Arts & Music Fest
Cornelius, NC

Another one of those events we intend to take in one of these days.

September 17  5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

This s a great opportunity to shop for those distinctive Christmas gifts.

September 24  4-9 PM
