The fairgrounds are a little quieter than normal this weekend with it being a holiday weekend, but the weather is forecast to be near perfect (low 80s and sunny) to enjoy a beautiful day at the Raleigh Flea Market or to take in one of the other events. The market features hundreds of dealers, craftsmen and booths and is held in the Commercial and Education buildings and outside grounds.
Other events this weekend:
