Park it at Live After Five
5:30 p.m. — The Pinehurst series returns after taking a break during summer’s hottest months. Enjoy the 10-degree difference. Local three-piece, Moonlight Shiners, opens for The Band Punch, a Top-40 party band from Raleigh. Free.

Take a Moonlit Hike

Visit an Ostrich Farm
9 a.m. — Misty Morning Ranch, the ostrich farm in Robbins you read a little about in a previous issue, will host a Misty Morning Mercado with goods from area artisans (including hand-painted ostrich eggs). With the chance to feed ostriches — and eat ostrich tacos from One Nine Drive — your kids will get a front-row seat to the circle of life.

Taste Unlimited Brews on Tap

Have Some Cheese With Your Wine
