Fun Things To Do in Wake Forest NC – January 18 – 24, 2010

Things To Do in Wake Forest NCI do believe the cold spell has finally started to break in Wake Forest NC!  We reached 60 degrees yesterday, a HEAT WAVE, and the upcoming week looks to be milder too!  That means it is just perfect to get out and enjoy some of the fun things to do in Wake Forest NC.

Applebee’s Beach Blast with their costume contest looks like it is going to be so much fun and don’t miss the Open House for Wake Forest NC Parks and Recreation – it’s a great opportunity to see all that’s available!
