Take Me Out to the Weekend Events

Think spring and enjoy the season opener for the Syracuse Chiefs, plus a variety of other weekend events in and around Central New York.

It’s a third of the way through April. The weather is on a winning streak. It’s getting more difficult to choose only so many events to include in this list. CNY is stretching its arms and finally basking in the outdoors and the weekend events the fair weather brings.

There are a few fundraisers for local organizations. Celebrate National Poetry Month with a couple literary-focused gatherings. Come together, you lonely and not-so-lonely hearts, for earfuls of great tunes. It’s opening season for Syracuse Chiefs! Hang out with some animals as they enjoy treats, and party like an animal.
