Spring Forward into March Events in the Hudson Valley
The month of March welcomes so many things. We can look forward to St. Patrick’s Day and officially welcome spring this month as well. It seems that especially this year; we already hear the birds chirping, feel the warmer temps and see the release of the spring fashions. I’ve been longing for the spring since summer left so I’m welcoming March with open arms. Soon enough well see the flowers blooming, the green grass growing, all the furry outdoor friends awaken and the earth start to come alive again. The warmer weather allows us to venture outside for exercise, outdoor events and road trips.
Some often feel that spring is a season of rebirth, growth and time to spring forward.
Here are some fun things that we can look forward to celebrating during March.
