Allison LockhartWhat’s happening around town this spring?

by Allison Lockhart, Realtor

After being stuck inside for a very cold and wet winter, most Americans are feeling the urge to experience the outdoors. The first day of Spring is enthusiastically greeted by young and old alike…I know I am beyond excited! I have been extremely busy cleaning the house, pressure washing the patio and weeding the garden in anticipation of the fun that lies ahead. Though the yellow snow (pollen) still covers everything, I am busily preparing for the festival season with family and friends while I keep my allergy medicine close at hand (my Spring allergies are the worst!).

This year I will not be able to start the festival season with Atlanta’s 79th Dogwood Festival, April 10-12th. Instead, I will load up the car and travel to Tallahassee, FL to watch my beloved Florida State Seminole’s in the Garnet and Gold game. F-L-O-R-I-D-A S-T-A-T-E, Florida State, Florida State, Florida State Woooooo!

My festival season will start this year with the Inman Park Festival and Tour of Homes on April 25th. Be sure to look for me at the parade. I will be the one in the red Keller Williams’ T-shirt cheering on my very eclectic group of friends.
