March Toward These Weekend Events in CNY

March begins with plenty of concerts, sports and family events to coax anyone out from their homes.

Welcome to March! The weather may be as flaky as its snow bits, but the activities keep pouring out in and around town. Break out the heavy coats, because the only way to get through this weekend is to fight the cold head-on.

Enjoy some pancake comfort food with locally tapped maple syrup, gear up for a run and then enjoy a colder beer, let magic amaze you and check out a musical with a notable soundtrack. There are plenty of concerts and an extended Syracuse dining week.
