So many things to see and do this week:

People turning themselves into dogs (sort of), puppet shows, the Indian culture, music from an African Children’s Choir, community bike rides and noonday walks, a free tennis day for kids, and a free BSU tennis game to watch, works of art, free egg crate planting, green smoothies and free scoops of ice cream!

That’s enough to give everyone a touch of the Spring Fever.
