The Town of Cary’s 45th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival was held this past weekend at Cary Town Hall. The event featured local artists, live entertainment, children’s activities, and a variety of food and drink vendors. Lane & Associates Family Dentistry was proud to be the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s event and excited to help cool down any festival go-ers with our fans and water stations! It was a hot one!

We also had a blast at our Kid’s Lazy Daze artwork station where they had an opportunity to draw, stamp, sticker, or color a fun piece of art! Take a look at some of the beautiful masterpieces!

Finally, nothing says festivals like a fun prize wheel and giveaways! Our prize wheel was spinning for attendees to win an assortment of swag items like T-shirts, frisbees, mints, and we even held a $100 Target Gift Card giveaway at the event. We’re sure you’re thinking, yeah, but who won?! We are so happy to announce that Jasmine S. won the $100 Target Gift Card! Congratulations, Jasmine

Thank you to all of the attendees who stopped by to hang with us or schedule their dental appointments with any of our Cary dentists! We had a wonderful time sharing smiles with our amazing Cary community! #happylazydaze

CARY LAZY DAZE FESTIVAL 2018: WHEN, WHERE, AND WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

*Above: Cary Lazy Daze 2018 Featured artist Roxanna Jo Alexander‘s rendition of Lane & Associates Family Dentistry’s Logo!*

WHEN

When is Cary Lazy Daze Festival in 2018? The Festival runs over the span of two days: Saturday, August 25th, and Sunday, August 26th. Each day there will be a schedule of entertainment on the main stage, vendors selling local art & crafts, and food trucks lining the outskirts of the event. We are especially looking forward to the chalk exhibit by nationally known Chalk artist Lisa Gaither, featuring a 3D Chalk painting of floating balloons over a dark cliff. The artist posted a “before” photo of what the exhibit will look like below. Check it out!

WHERE

Where will Cary Lazy Daze Festival take place in 2018? The festival will be held in Downtown Cary, NC from Academy Street to Wilkinson Avenue and around Ambassador Loop. Pro Tip: Start from one end of the event and make your way around! There will be plenty to see along each section & maps will be posted throughout the area so you won’t miss out on any goodies (including food which is in section F, we checked!). Many of the nearby churches and schools will have FREE parking and additional parking will be available all along the outskirts of the streets but get there early for a good space! Check out a map of the event below!

WHY

Why should I attend the Cary Lazy Daze Festival in 2018? If you are a fan of Food, Music, Art, Culture, and Local events – you don’t want to miss this! Since we were sponsors of the event last year we got to see the amazing vendors and entertainment all weekend long. An art vendor across from us had an amazing Light bulb exhibition that shone brightly throughout the weekend and many attendees found really great art deals throughout the event. We saw so many people going home with $15 cotton wreaths that we thought JoAnna Gaines was in town! Our last reason, but certainly not least, is that Lane & Associates will have DOOR PRIZES for adults and even a FREE T-shirt decorating station at our booth for kids! It will be an event the entire family will enjoy and we can’t wait to see you there!

Above: Last year’s light bulb and metal vendor.

Come decorate FREE T-Shirts!! Look for the Blue and White striped tent with our gold “We love to make you smile!” flag!
