First Fridays kicks off the weekend with a bang. All the galleries on and around the downtown mall open their doors to showcase what’s hot in art right now. This is a free event and is as cool as it gets. Add on dinner at a hot downtown restaurant (like Tempo) and it is a memorable evening! Make it a luxurious weekend with an Omni add on and it will be unforgettable.
You can’t go wrong with a fun Easter Egg hunt on Easter weekend. The two we know of are at Carter Mountain (complete with stunning views of the Charlottesville area) and another in combination with the Tulip Festival – a showcase of spring beauty complete with an Easter Bunny.
And finally – City Market opens for the season on Saturday. As always, you can expect farm-fresh goodness in all the produce, herbs and plants along with fresh meats and bakery items. With all of this Spring in the air, it also couldn’t hurt to brush up on golfing skills with a quick lesson or two.
