Flight Night @ Secco

Mon Apr 23 12:00 pm
Trying new things is like hitting the refresh button on our existence: it delivers us from complacency, engages our senses and forces us to question our tastes, values and, in turn, our very nature. Yet, more often than not, most of us will opt for the familiar over the unknown. Every Monday.

West Avenue Garden Tour

Sun Apr 29 12:00 pm
Plan to come to this free and open to the public
event. There is a children’s flag parade at noon followed by clowns, face painting and other activities to please the children. Refreshments are served in the alleys and many of the gardens in the alleys between Franklin Street, West Avenue and Park Avenue will be open. It is a great way to get ideas on how to garden in small spaces. The gardens are open from 12:30 p.m., until 5:00 p.m. This event is lots of fun and will take place rain or shine.
