Cary, NC — Last weekend, we focused on taking pictures of concerts, nightlife and landscapes in Downtown Cary, Memorial Day services, Durham Bulls games and more.

Live at Lunch ft. Erin Mason
You’ve got to hear Erin Mason, a from-Cary junior currently in college at App State, sing. Erin performed at last Thursday’s Live at Lunch in Downtown Cary, and, despite cloudy skies and a sudden downpour that had town staff and band members frantically un-pluging and covering sound equipment, she put on a sparkling performance.

Memorial Day in Cary
Monday’s Memorial Day service at the Veterans Freedom Park on North Harrison Avenue was the first for Cary, as the memorial was dedicated only one year ago.
There was a big crowd with many veterans, and the Cary Band started the service off with a medley of Patriotic tunes, including the national anthem.
Different armed services anthems were played, and those who had served were asked to please stand when their branch’s music was played.
Doug McRainey, Town of Cary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Director, gave opening remarks while Councilman Don Frantz read off the Town’s proclamation declaring May 25 the town’s official observance of Memorial Day.
Councilman Jack Smith, the only former-serviceman in council, also spoke.

Durham Bulls Game
Memorial Day was also the perfect day for a Durham Bulls baseball game.
