No time like the New Year to try something new, whether it’s a skill-building class or an educational performance. It’s also totally ok to watch a well-loved movie for the umpteenth time, too (a Frozen sing-a-long? We still haven’t let it go…).

After a wacky winter, it’s safe to say that we are more than ready for full-time spring weather. The April event lineup is packed with opportunities to get out and enjoy it, too.
