Dailypost130 286

Spring has sprung! Shake off the gray days of winter out and about experiencing some great local events with the family.

1. Laugh out loud at “13” the Musical, a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it, presented by Playing for Others.

2. Pet a baby lamb, hear stories by professional story tellers and learn more about antebellum life on a farm at Children’s Day on the Farm.

3. Delve into the fantastical world of peculiar creatures with Alice in Wonderland performed by the Charlotte Youth Ballet.

4. Learn how to build a fort in woods at Fort Building at McDowell Nature Center.

5. Put on your spring rain boots for an excursion to try and find and catch a thumbnail-sized Pepper Frog at Pepper Prowl.

6. If you haven’t been to Jetton Park by Lake Norman, pack a picnic and spend the day there on the beach by the water and strolling, biking, walking or scooting on the paved trail around the park.

And it’s not too late to take advantage of the spring consignment sales happening around town. Find one happening this weekend near you.
