If you are ready for the wekend to be here along with warmer weather you are NOT ALONE! We’re all ready to break out the shorts and sunscreen but in the meantime let’s just be thankful that warmer temperatures are about to give us a kiss on the nose right here in Elizabethtown! Yeah for warmth.
Now, moving right along, we know many of you are waiting to find a way to get plugged in this weekend and do something. Whether you want to find a deal, or enjoy some local high school entertainment, we have some options for you!
So, without any further waiting, let’s dive right into our TOP 5 list of things to do this weekend! (These are in no particular order and no business paid us for their right to be on the list nor did they give me a year-round gift card for free sweet tea at Chick-fil-A, I promise.)
You can click on the links below for each idea to get the location, cost, and more information on each event.
Idea # 1 - Mar. 7-8 “Legally Blonde” by Central Hardin High Drama Club (The Pac).I love watching local high school productions and this one is no different. You have 2 options of show times, but come on out and support a local drama program as they put on a performance of “Legally Blonde”. The rating is PG so be sure and pay attention to some content or subject that may not be appropriate for small children.
Idea # 2 – Mar 8 - Cooking Class (FREE). Heartland Whole Life is excited to be having their very first cooking class from 3-5pm on Saturday, March 8th since they’ve moved to their new location on the Public Square in Elizabethtown. The cooking class is always informative and leaves you with many great ideas on taking steps to provide healthier options for you and your family. And did I mention that whatever recipe it is they prepare you get to taste and have samples? Oh, yes! And let me just say that the Chicken Curry recipe that they made last year that I got to sample has worked its way into my monthly rotation of meals! And I was one that I proclaimed to not like Curry! So, be prepared and open for new ideas! Plus, Second Saturday is this weekend, which is from 5-8pm, so you’d be at the perfect place to stick around and enjoy the rest of downtown for more fun (See Idea # 3)
Idea # 3 - Mar. 8 - Second Saturday (Downtown Elizabethtown) Each month Second Saturday is from 5-8pm and it is focused on the downtown community a local businesses aim to get some energy/fun going on in the downtown area. Especially as warmer weather heads into our path you can look forward each month to local musicians, artists, crafters, etc..coming out and getting connected at Second Saturday. This Saturday the same is true.
Idea # 4 -Mar 8 – Empty Bowls Fundraiser (benefits Warm Blessings). What is Warm Blessings? Warm Blessings is a phenomenal non-profit that is dedicated to ministering to the whole person by providing meals to hungry people with the vision to offer emergency shelter to people in crisis. This fun Empty Bowls Fundraiser allows you to come to their location in Elizabethtown, make a $15 donation and enjoy a soup meal. You’ll also get to leave with your hand-crafted bowl.
Idea # 5 - Mar. 9 – Louisville Family Fun InstaFAM Hunt (On Museum Row – Special discount code for our readers). First, let’s be clear, you’ll want to come to this event with a smart phone that has Instagram on it!
