This Weekend in Awesome

Hey guys! Guess what? Spring is here. And the return of spring means the return of flowers and Washington Park Deck hours and so many fun things to do outdoors. I have never been one to love hot weather, but you’re dang right I love being outside — even if this beautiful, mild weather only lasts a month or so.

Starting in April, you’ll see flowers and trees bloom, creamy whips open, Ludlow Bromley Yacht Club float back to life, The Root Beer Stand serve up its legendary fare (for the 60th year!), farmers markets spring up around the region, and so much more. Regular [free] events in the city include:

Strauss Troy Market on Fountain Square, 11am–2pm
