Lazy Daze brings big crowd to downtown Cary

From staff reportsAugust 24, 2013 

For one Saturday every August, downtown Cary transforms into a giant celebration of art.

About 385 vendors were expected to set up for the 37th annual Lazy Daze festival on Saturday. The event has become one of the most popular arts festivals in the country.

This year’s celebration included aerialists, who performed on silks suspended from a tripod, and films made by participants in the Cary Youth Video Project.

The festival has been canceled only once, due to a hurricane in 2011. But festival-goers couldn’t have asked for better weather this year – skies were blue and temperatures were in the 80s.
