Judging by the activity level, spring has already sprung in the South Perry neighborhood. In short order, there's an art walk scheduled for St. Patrick's Day, March 17. The plan is for this to be the first “Third Thursday” art walk on South Perry.
A group is gathering to put together a couple of concerts in Grant Park this summer - more details forthcoming.
And on Monday, 2/28, the Perry Street Fair committee is meeting at the Perry Street Cafe at 4 p.m. - please join this meeting. The annual fair and parade needs as many volunteers as we can stuff into the Perry Street Cafe.
Finally - don't forget to stop by the South Perry Farmers Market. The snow shouldn't discourage you, the market is cozy indoors just next to the Buddhist Temple. Open from 3-6 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
