I remember saying that alot when I was in high school. I’m sure it was partly true but mostly I was just uninformed. Every Saturday I would read the EVENT section of in the newspaper but it was usually a list of book clubs and church carnivals. YAWN. But now thanks to the evolution of the internet my calendar is always full!
I thought I’d share a few of my resources for keeping up with all the hot events going on around town. If you don’t live in the Triangle I’m sure there are similar sites in your neck of the woods.
Triangle Mom2Mom – A division of the News and Observer that helps mothers in the Triangle connect, share advice and keep up on exciting events.
Carolina Parent – A monthly magazine published for parents in the Triangle.
City of Raleigh – This one takes a little looking around but alot of City Parks, Museums and Art Associations list their upcoming events on this site.
Visit Raleigh – Just pretend your a tourist and there’s tons of stuff to do!
Downtown Raleigh – Where all the hip kids go to find out where to go and what to do.
Independent Weekly – Music, Movies, Cultural Events and MORE!
And thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites all of my mommy friends keep me up-to-date on everything else.
A few upcoming events I’m really excited about are Book Babies at East Regional Library, Heros, Villains and Special Effects at the Museum of Life and Science, Mordecai Historic Park Baking Contest, and Baby Time at the Cameron Village Library.
What resources do you use to keep up with events in your area?
