April Calendar is Up!

Whew! The April Calendar is up. So many great things this month, I'm not sure where to start.

If you haven't seen the Franklin Exhibit at the National Constitution Center you've only have less than a month to go. Get on down there!

With the Cherry Blossom festival happening the beginning of the month there is much Japanese Culture to participate in. Your best bet for the money and time is Sakura Sunday on April 9th. Of course, if you go to that you'll miss the Indonesian Festival at Swarthmore the same afternoon. Bummer that they are on the same day! Swarthmore is also hosting the Taiko drumming troupe that will be appearing at various other venues in the area, most for a fee. On April 2 at 7 pm you can see them at the Lang Concert Hall and it looks to be free.

This is the last month to catch most of the free classical music concerts at local universities, classes will be over in May.

Starparties are back on the calendar. Spring and Fall are good times to participate in these as the weather is warm enough to be enjoyable, but there isn't very much humidity which interferes with viewing.

The historical event of the month is the "Rural Life in the 1900's" day at Pennypacker Mills on the 22nd. Of course that is the same day as the Hawk Mountain Earth Day Celebration which makes for another tough call.

And, finally I'll mention that I'll be on the other side of a fieldlearning event on April 23 as I do a Children's Yarn and Weaving Workshop at the Locktender's House on the Schuylkill Canal in Mont Clare (right across the river from Phoenixville). 1:15 pm. Free.

BTW, our family will be at an event I didn't put on the calendar on April 1. We are going to watch a Scottish Highland Dance Competition at the Hilltop School in Villanova. Kids under 12 are free and adults are $5. Details in a pdf a the bottom of this page.

I haven't included links to the events in this post as they are all in the calendar.

Have a great weekend and enjoy this beautiful weather.

    We're all about outdoors today! Going to explore Pine Creek Park - the nearest park to us and will blow bubbles, kick balls and generally blow some stink off. There are a million things on my to-do list but none of them more important than airing out the kids.
