We don’t have to tell you that July Fourth falls on a Wednesday this year. We also don’t have to tell you that 86% of your office will be physically or mentally checked out for a week and a half. If you’re hanging around town, here’s a list of things to do:

Tuesday, 4-10 p.m.: Pinehurst holds its annual Fourthfest. Gates open at 4 p.m. for parking. A top 40 band provides tunes. Kids will get worn out from a video game trailer, pony rides and bounce houses before fireworks (at 9 p.m.) shock them into four more hours of hyperdrive. Info.

10 a.m. — Pinehurst holds its Independence Day Parade, full of festive golf carts. You’ll want to get there by 9:30 to check out the Patriotic Pet Parade, which always includes a rabbit and at least one chicken. Info.
11 a.m. — Carthage holds its Fourth of July Parade, where you’ll be treated to every vehicle with a siren in Moore County. The choice spot for viewing is on the courthouse lawn. Want to join in? Just meet at the McDonalds by 10:15 a.m. Seriously.
2 p.m. — The Moore County Concert Band performs a free concert at The Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst. Seats are first come-first served.
2 -11 p.m. — High Octane and Railhouse Brewery host a block party in downtown Aberdeen, with live music, food trucks, lawn games and giveaways.  Info.
5 p.m. — Festivities begin at Aberdeen Lake Park. Admission is free, but a $5 wristband buys unlimited play on a rock wall and various inflatables. Fireworks begin at 9:15 p.m. And yes, there’ll be water in the lake.
