Life in Carolina Square is filled with comforts. Your modern apartment home is surrounded by amenities that make summer great, including ample outdoor living and recreation options that let you capitalize on the excellent climate. Yet sometimes you want to venture into town and enjoy some of the things that it offers. In Chapel Hill, you’ll find that there are many opportunities to enjoy your local community, and when you’re done your new apartment will be waiting for you when you return.
Catch a Movie Under the Stars
On select Thursdays throughout the summer starting June 7, head to Wallace Plaza to enjoy Movies Under the Stars. This year’s movies take on a superhero theme at the start of the summer, with Spiderman: Homecoming and Wonder Woman starting the season. These two are followed by the latest Star Wars flicks, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. The summer series finishes with Disney movies including Coco and Beauty and the Beast.
July Fourth Celebration
Chapel Hill’s Fourth of July Celebration takes place at Kenan Memorial Stadium. This particular celebration was named as one of the Top 10 Best Towns for a Fourth of July Celebration in the nation by Travel & Leisure. Old fashioned games, including a watermelon eating contest, plenty of food and live music from RadioJacks mean fun for all. At 9:30, the stadium comes alive with a fabulous fireworks celebration. Stake out your seat early because the doors open at 7 pm, almost three hours before the fireworks show. Sticking close to home for the Fourth won’t disappoint in Chapel Hill.
Concert on the Village Green
Every Sunday throughout the summer, head to Southern Village for Concert on the Village Green. This free outdoor concert series, which starts at 6 on Sundays, brings different genres of music each week. On June 3, you’ll love hearing the concert by Too Much Fun. This band loves to interact with its audience, and you’ll be able to dance along at the concert. Be ready to enjoy some quizzes and jokes along the way.
Life in Chapel Hill is rarely boring, but in the summer the opportunities to spend time in the community are even more better to enjoy. Make your plans now so you don’t miss any of these fun community events!
