There's no shortage of ways to play at the Y! They believe that summer camp should be FUN! Every child gets the opportunity to explore, let loose, uncover talents, make new friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. www.ymcacharlotte.org
Charlotte Regional Farmers Market.
Free samples and donuts all day! I recommend you get there early. This year-round market has the most options for garden-fresh veggies and locally raised meats. Located on Yorkmont Road. Find special happenings posted on the market’s Facebook page.
