Daylight saving time then ends on the first Sunday in November, actually November 7th. Yep, summer is about to end for us so lets rush in and grab all the sun we can. I even see the leaves falling! The last day of summer is Wednesday September 22 and here are some things you can still do before the summer technically ends. The US National Whitewater Center is still hosting River Jam Concerts. Concerts are held each Thursday and Saturday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm weekly through the end of summer. These concerts feature a variety of artist, has good food and craft beer. This is a free event however parking is $6.00. The Charlotte Knights will have games and fun through September 19th and there is plenty of food, beer and sodas available for purchase.
Lake Norman State Park has a beach for those who want to feel like they are at the beach without the long drive. There is a concession stand to purchase snacks, there is a bathhouse, public restrooms and lockers for rent. It is free to access the main park area. Carrigan Farms is offering open swim and fishing through the end of September. Carrigan Farms offers a rock quarry that you can jump right off the rocks into the 25-foot-deep quarry! Don’t want to be adventurous, crab your pole to do some catch and release fishing. The cost to swim varies and you must pass a swim test to swim without a life jacket. Saving the best for last, the Carolina Panthers Football is back, and tickets are available!
