Time for some Mother’s Day Weekend Fun in Columbus, GA!

Now, I'm not hear to preach or tell you how to run your lives, but I would like to give you a not-so-sublte reminder that Mother's Day is THIS Sunday, so if you haven't already made plans to treat Mom to something special this weekend, you'd better get planning!  How about if I give you a quick rundown of a couple of things going on that she might enjoy...and I'd be willing to be that you'd have a good time too!

Actually, if you just head to Uptown Columbus, you'll be right in the middle of tons of stuff going on.  The Columbus Symphony Orchestra has their final performance of the season Saturday night at RiverCenter and if you're still celebrating on Monday, maybe take Mom out to dinner then treat her to a performance with the Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus at RiverCenter and their Maestro for a Moment performance...that's a really talented bunch of young musicians and the competition between the three guest 'conductors' is always a lot of fun!

If it's outdoor, festival-fun you're looking for...boy are you in for a TREAT!  It's the return of RiverFest in Uptown Columbus and they have non-stop fun planned from Friday evening to late Saturday night.  There's a concert tonight with an incredible Eagle's tribute band called On the Border who I hear are phenomenal, the Boy Scouts invade Woodruff Park with all sorts of cool stuff, there'll be food trucks on Dillingham Street Bridge, the 2nd Annual Dragon Boat Race, all sorts of activities going on in the river...stand-up paddleboards, kayak demonstrations, boatercross, rafting, a reenactment from Port Columbus showing how during the Civil War, ironclads were able to make a daring escape...going down the rapids!...food, food and more food, and lots of vendors selling just about anything you can think of!

Mom will love it, the kids will love it, you'll love it...sounds like a winner of a weekend for us all.

Find out lots more details about these and other events on the Event Calendar.

And Happy Mother's Day, Mom!!
