Free concert fun in your neighborhood!

June 12, 2013

When summer rolls around, Expedite Group clients often ask for assistance finding low-cost entertainment in their parts of the Triangle.  These free events are a great way to get out and enjoy North Carolina’s long summer evenings, meet up with old friends, and connect with your community.   I thought everyone could benefit from the list as a way to blow off work stress without blowing a whole pay check!

(If you know of any I have missed, by all means fill us all in with your comment below!)
