Over 7,000 enjoy an evening with the NC Symphony at Pops in the Park.

A crowd of over 7,000 helped WRAL-TV carry on its annual tradition of Pops in the Park on Labor Day Sunday, September 4, 2005. The 26th annual edition of the event took place at Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre and featured the NC Symphony and Mike Cross.

Attendees also took advantage of the opportunity to donate to the American Red Cross for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. WRAL-TV collected over $5,000 at the event.
