Not a golfer? No problem!

As the SAS Championship launches here in Cary, one thing is certain: You don’t need to golf to enjoy it!

Among the festivities happening around the big event are Food Truck Friday, Live Fearless 5k, and the WakeMed Families First Fun Fest.

Following the first round of tournament play on Oct. 10, Food Truck Friday will feature some of the area’s most popular trucks, including American Meltdown, Chirba Chirba, Parlez-Vous Crepe and more.

Trucks will start serving at 4 p.m., and the evening will feature free live music from Peak City Sound.
