While it’s still chilly out, these peaks of sun we’ve been getting make it hard not to long for spring. We’re not quite there yet, but instead of getting lost in the throes of winter, why not make the most of the time we have left with it? Whether it’s an event around town or some cozy couch time, there’s plenty to see and do this weekend while still staying warm.

Remember, many situations can cancel or cause schedule changes for events and outings, so always check before you go.
