Chapel Hill honors and celebrates culture in Sunday's international festival

International flags line Franklin Street in preparation for the upcoming Near and Far Festival in Chapel Hill this weekend, which will honor and celebrate the town's global community.  The festival will be Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at 140 West Franklin St. Plaza and will feature performances from Pline Mounzeo to Prema Natya Vidyalaya Dance School. The event will also have interactive exhibits such as UNC Global, the Chapel Hill Chinese School and a tasting tent. 


Açaí bowls have come to Franklin Street with the opening of The Purple Bowl.

Establishments are going cashless.  Some restaurants have stopped accepting bills or coins because they fear being robbed, while others see ‘going cashless’ as a step toward the digital future. Many establishments agree it increases cleanliness and efficiency. The conversation between businesses going cashless is not straight forward, but for some businesses they believe it makes more sense.
