CNY Events Sprouting Up This Weekend

Making your list of CNY events this weekend? There are plenty of blossoming options to get you outside, brighten your weekend and keep you busy.

Happy Earth Day weekend, CNY! Events are populating by the number and blossoming into hypoallergenic offerings to get you all prepped for the warmer weather and brighter days.

Be sure to give thanks to Mother Nature by visiting one of the many nature centers, parks or refuges and participating in whatever fun they’re offering. Don’t be afraid to get hands dirty, but be afraid of the repercussions of littering. (Yes, a little preemptive scolding serves as a good scare tactic.)

If you’re not into nature, get out of it with a some pavement pounding fundraiser runs and walks, head over to the ballpark for a hot dog and a beer, laugh at Pauly Shore or listen to some good music. Make the best of what’s around town, because it’s all for you.
