Arbor Annie’s Spring Forward Weekend Roundup – March 8-10

This weekend we spring forward the clocks losing an hour of sleep on Sunday morning. The weekend is highlighted by the release of Captain Marvel, St Patrick’s Day themed events, and much more.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - March 8-10

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Our weekend highlight is Captain Marvel. We’ve had our tickets for a few weeks.

St Patrick’s Day may not be until next weekend, but there are several St Patrick’s Day events this weekend including Conor O’Neill’s annual Shamrocks & Shenanigans.

Kid Friendly St Patrick's Day Activities

March is also time for maple syrup events like Journey to the Sugarbush. My daughter loved the maple syrup field trip she attended a few years ago.

Be sure to check our Guide to Spring Mom2Mom Sales. There is another this weekend and more in coming weeks.
