The Wake Forest Recreation Advisory Board's 10th annual "Wake Forest Unplugged...Get Connected" is Sunday, Sept. 1, from 4-6 p.m. at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.

Wake Forest Unplugged invites area residents to disconnect from their smart phones, computers and other electronic devices and reconnect with their community, friends and family by engaging in healthier, more active pursuits. As part of the event, the Recreation Advisory Board (RAB) will host a variety of organized games and activities, including sack and relay races, corn hole and miniature golf, from 4-6 p.m. in the vicinity of the Walker Garden.

The electronics-free afternoon will culminate with a free concert in the Joyner Park Amphitheater from 5-7 p.m. featuring the Caribbean band Sensory Expressions.

Area residents are encouraged to bring a picnic, leashed pets, a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the music. Food will also be available to purchase on-site. Concert-goers are reminded that alcoholic beverages, smoking and unleashed pets are prohibited at Joyner Park.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert may be relocated to the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St. Updated concert information will be available by 3 p.m. on the day of the concert on the Town’s Facebook page and by calling the Wake Forest Weather Line at 919-435-9569.
