The 2018 Cosplay Cookout.
Shelter 22 at 14600 Creedmore Rd, Wake Forest, NC 27587 (not far from Raleigh or Durham)
$7 per car
This is a potluck style cookout, and there is a sign up list so everyone doesn't bring tons of the same thing.
Alcohol is strictly prohibited in the park, so don't bring any. No pets allowed, but of course service animals are fine.
There is a swimming area nearby, so feel free to bring your swimsuits or summer cosplays.
