Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker said things are "looking good" for Friday night's planned Raleigh Wide Open 3 celebration and stated the city is maintaining its schedule for the opening of the Raleigh Convention Center and Raleigh Wide Open 3. City officials will continue to monitor Hurricane Hanna's track and weather forecasts. If predictions are altered to include threatening conditions, changes in the celebration will be made.

The Raleigh Convention Center will be dedicated at noon on Friday.

Meeker was less optimistic about Saturday's schedule for Raleigh Wide Open.
