NOTE:  This page is updated every Wednesday afternoon.  We have selected events and venues based on the event description but, in most cases, have not attended, so please use your own judgment when choosing events to attend or view.  Age descriptions are provided by the event venue.  If an event is sold out when we're putting together this list, we don't list it here, to prevent disappointment. Be sure to check our event calendar regularly in advance to catch fun events before they sell out!


  1. The Lowell Spring Carnival is at Regatta Field until June 5th!
  2. Springdell Farm's annual Field Day is Saturday.  Stop in for fun on the farm!
