2024 is a leap year, meaning there’s an extra day tucked into February to keep our calendar on track. Without leap years, calendars would be off by ~501 days — so Feb. 5, 2024 would actually be June 22, 2025, or the middle of summer.

We’re treating Thursday, Feb. 29 as a free day where you can do whatever you’d like, maybe something you’ve never tried before.

We want to know: How would you spend an extra 24 hours in Raleigh? You might try a lavish restaurant you’ve never found time for, give back to the community, or literally take a leap and go skydiving — the sky’s the limit.

Let us know how you’d like to spend your extra day in Raleigh — no restrictions — and we’ll share some of our favorites on leap day 2024.
