What to do this Weekend in Columbus, GA!

Check the clock, the weekend is staring us in the face so it's time we start making some plans for fun.  And speaking of clocks, don't forget this is the weekend to "spring forward," so set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed Saturday night.  That means we've got even less time to cram in all this weekend fun!  Here's a look at a couple of things you might want to do.

You only have two more weekends to see the show that Sherlock’s Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre is putting on at the Columbus Marriott and tickets are going fast…in fact, performances keep selling out!  In this show, it's a celebration of the 100th birthday  of the Godfather, Don Cannoli Tortellini Pimento Clamato and the time has come to name his successor. Who will he choose? Or will the ruthless Ravioli family make their mover to take over before the old man has a chance to make his decision. Everybody will love this hilarious spoof on your favorite mafia movies! Remember, it’s only showing this weekend and next and I’m really not exaggerating…shows have been selling out really fast!

Besides checking the clock, you might also want to check the calendar because Spring is only 12 days away!  And you can also tell it's on the way because it’s time for the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society’s 2013 Camellia Show at the Columbus Museum.  All the gorgeous blooms will be on display this weekend (Mar 9 & 10) and spectators as well as competitors are welcome. It’s open to the public and free of charge! In addition to viewing the breathtaking blooms entered in the show, you can take advantage of the many exciting exhibits at the Columbus Museum, such as Homer in America and Parasols, Purses, and Petticoats, as well as take a stroll through the lovely Olmstead Garden. The 2012 show brought over 1,000 patrons and more than 850 spectacular blooms and this year should be even bigger. County Line Nursery will be on sit on Saturday with Camellia plants for sale!  No admission on this one.

I can tell you from first hand experience that if you have not yet seen Yesterday and Today: The Beatles Interactive Experience at the Springer Opera House, you must go! You will not regret it!  And if you’ve already seen and you’re like me, you are trying to get a babysitter so you can go again. It is a fantastic show! The McGuigan Brothers were phenomenal. The storytelling was great, the music was awesome. People were up dancing in the aisles. These brothers spent years perfecting every song in the Beatles catalogue and they did a great job. The show is built on audience requests so every performance is different. When I went, there were people in the audience from 10 years to 85 years old, which really tells you that this music reaches across all generations. GO SEE THIS ONE!!

Other things you might want to put on your list to do this weekend include a performance with The Family Theatre called "The Mousetrap," great music with the Columbus Jazz Society's Jazz Jam this Sunday night at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, and a cool wildlife crafts class at FDR State Park.

Don't forget to take a look at the Event Calendar to get the big picture of all the events going on this weekend.

Now, go have some fun...
