All Out Inspired
Get the latest on events, ideas and ways to go all out in Columbus, Georgia!
March 6, 2015
So what’ll it be this weekend? Art, Music, Broadway Show, a 5K? It’s all on tap in Columbus, GA!
You can tell Winter is slowly melting away and that Spring is on the horizon just by taking a look at all the events being organized as we speak. There's a lot about to happen with the advent of this new season and even this weekend, you get a sense of what we have to look forward to by the number...and variety...of entertaining options to get out and enjoy. Just in the past couple of weeks, I was able to begin shaking off the cobwebs of winter by attending the Russian Ballet at RiverCenter, getting swept away in the Broadway smash "The Producers" at the Springer Opera House, and was wiping away tears of giggle-fits brought on by comedian Kathleen Madigan. The point is, we all need an escape from the Monday through Friday grind, and a little fun distraction on the weekend does a lot of good for the body and soul.
And we're lucky enough to live in a city where you have choices, variety, and a lot of options to choose from. Take a look at the Event Calendar to get all the details on things like the First Friday Artwalk in Uptown, the Ledger-Enquirer Home & Garden Show at the Trade Center, a Brass Band Concert at RiverCenter, or head outside for Ride on Bikes Time Change Party or the Open Door Community 5K at Woodruff Park in Uptown Columbus with Big Dog Running Company. And if you haven't had a chance to see "The Producers" at the Springer, get online NOW to order your tickets! Got the chance to see it and it is a whole lot of fun with typical Mel Brooks humor. Between the incredible singing, amazing costumes, sets that look like they came right off a Broadway stage, and some very impressive dance choreography, I think you'll be impressed as well!
Just remember, you have one less hour to squeeze all the fun in this weekend. Daylight Saving Time is back so set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night...or you're going to be really late for everything on Sunday!
