Celebrate the "Lazy Daze" of summer this weekend in Downtown Cary

CARY, N.C. (WTVD) -- Sunday is the final day people can enjoy the 2022 Lazy Daze festival in Cary. Don't forget your sunscreen and plan to drink plenty of water. ABC11 Meteorologist Steven Stewart said it will be hot and humid.

Saturday, the Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival closed one hour early on Saturday because of lightning in the area.

The festival was scheduled to end at 5 p.m. but officials decided to end early for safety reasons.

Look for much more on Lazy Daze on air tonight and online.



The Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival is on Saturday, August 27, and Sunday, August 28, from 9 AM to 5 PM at the Cary Town Hall Campus.

Nearly 300 artists from across the country gather for this juried craft show celebrating the "Lazy Daze" of summer.
