Spring Fest 2009
• The Commons
The arrival of April means a slew of local outdoor festivals, and this excites me greatly. Next week, The Commons at Eudora Welty's Birthplace kicks off Spring Fest 2009, with various nightly events leading up to a big festival Saturday. During the week, plan to attend the opening of a new group art show, an open-mic night and short story reading, performances by Front Porch Dance Company, Mississippi Improv Alliance, and Johnny Bertram and more. Then on April 18, gear up for food, more music, arts and crafts as the big event begins at 10 a.m. Ms. Welty, I think, would appreciate such a celebration. Call 601-352-3399 for more.
