Have you ever tried to say “Spring” without smiling? Try saying it. It’s pretty difficult isn’t it? Reason being – Spring is the time of the year that gives you a good feeling all over. The sun is shining more and more. The tree’s and flowers are blooming; the weather is beautiful and it’s time for getting out doors for some fun! Thanks to my mother who introduced me to alot of social events growing up; I’m one of those people who can enjoy just about every type of out door activity. I enjoy attending all types of sporting events, parades, jazz in the park, festivals, picnics etc. So, if you enjoy the Spring like I do; then you will enjoy getting out to support the following events around Metro Atlanta this Spring. I would also like to encourage you to venture out of your community and try to support some of the local events in other areas as well. “P.S…You never know who you may meet in Atlanta!”
