Check out the top five events you don’t want to miss happening around the area this month:

Attend a Rare & Fine Wine Auction (3/1): Are you a wine lover? You don’t have to be a sommelier to appreciate unique selections of wine from around the world. Don’t miss your opportunity to snag a bottle from the Rare & Fine Wine Live Auction at Leland Little. Leland Little is a local auctioning gallery that has been providing auctioneering services for fine art and estates in Hillsborough for over 20 years.

Explore Women’s History at UNC Chapel Hill (3/2; 3/23): Priceless Gem tours aren’t just your typical campus visits. These special tours provide an in-depth look at a specific aspect of UNC’s culture that can only be shared from a true historian.

Fly high at the Carrboro Annual Kite Fly (3/18): Fill the skies with color and delight in the spirit of spring.

Go on a grand search at a community egg hunt (3/24): Bring along your kids and an egg basket for the annual egg hunts taking place in Chapel Hill, Hillsborough or Carrboro.
