the park is popping.

so, charlotte is a great city. Nay, a fantastic city. It is pretty, warm, we have a football team and yet just 20 min away you see cows and pastures. 
but there aren't many awesome things to do in Charlotte that don't feel... forced. I don't know why, but that is the word that fits it best.
There is on thing. One glorious, amazing, lovely thing.
Pops in the Park!!!

Every summer during the month of June, the Charlotte Symphony has free Sunday night outdoor concerts. It is out near SouthPark, and you bring a blanket, wine, tasty food and lay out and listen to the incredible music. It is the MOST fun. 
Some people nap, some people play games, some people just catch up. Some of my favorite summer memories take place there.
Anyway, tonight is the kick-off. "Symphony Goes Country" is the theme. That is when they play songs from Oklahoma, as well as some other favorites. The best night is "Celebrate America" night, which is the last sunday in june. There are fireworks that night. It is pretty perfect.
So, that is my report on Pops in the Park. 
Everytime i typed "pops in the park" i would first type "poops" and have to correct it. Whoops. That is a different event all together. But equally magical.
