    Apple Chill Street Fair

    by TimDaoust Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Apple Chill street fair happens once a year in April and is mainly an arts and crafts fair. During the fair which lasts most of the afternoon into the evening you will also find international foods and various entertainment. I have never been but I hear it's cool and I think I'm going to have to go this year. It's on Sunday April 17, this year.

  • Do not Celebrate Duke in Chapel Hill

    The University of North Carolina and Duke are two of the best universities in the country. A mere 11 miles separates these rivals and it is considered poor taste to celebrate one while in the town of the other. Remember in Chapel Hill, you are a Carolina Tar Heels fan, not a "Dookie"

    Halloween Night

    by TimDaoust Written Feb 22, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every year on Halloween night, everyone (well, most everyone) here looks forward to the Chapel Hill Franklin St. Halloween celebration. The police close down several blocks of the main drag, Franklin St. and people of all ages and walks of life come out in all manner of homemade Halloween costumes. The typical french maid outfit to the most odd. The weirdest I saw was a couple dressed as a washer dryer. The event is usually loads of fun. I've only been once but I enjoyed it. Parking is a hassle and worse than one might expect for something like a football game but it's worth it. The whole town goes nuts and there are drum circles and people walking around in droves dressed up to impress or to scare or to get a few laughs.
