Starting at 8 a.m. at Bond Park Waterfront (801 High House Road in Cary), enjoy tons of fun at the Independence Day Olde Time Celebration. The event kicks off with a parent-child fishing tournament (registration begins at 7:30 a.m.), then a parade in the park (decorate your bike, wagon, scooter or stroller starting at 9 a.m.), followed by a theatrical performance by Applause! Cary Youth Theatre. There will also be a doughnut eating contest, a watermelon seed spitting contest and many other family competitions. The celebration is free. For more info, call 469-4061.
