Wake Forest, NC Spring Events at E. Carroll Joyner Park

As spring weather approaches many people begin thinking about the spring and summer events in Wake Forest, NC.  One of our favorite parks, E. Carroll Joyner Park, plays host to many of these great events.  Tripp decided to visit the park this morning to get a glimpse of the park before the sunrise to see it below a beautiful night sky.

Joyner Park is not far from most anywhere in Wake Forest. If parks are important then Joyner Park should be on your list to visit when touring town. Also worth noting is the newest park in the area, Forest Ridge Park(technically a Raleigh Park, but has a Wake Forest address).

Here is a list of the upcoming spring and summer events to look forward to at E. Carroll Joyner Park:
