Spring is here, and the social calendar in Durham and the surrounding communities is filling quickly with fun things to do. After the busy graduation season, you will find plenty of activities and events to keep you busy. Have you found your spring activities yet? Here are some of the Trinity Commons family’s favorite local events that you may want to check out!
Do you love Anime art? Then head to the Raleigh Convention Center on May 27 through 29 for Animazement, a festival celebrating Japanese culture, education, community and, of course Anime. Live entertainment, vendor booths, artist demonstration and plenty of costumes will welcome event goers to this family-friendly celebration.
Not far away in Greensboro, you can experience the longest-running blues festival in the Southeast on May 21. Located in Barber Park, the festival brings some of the area’s best blue’s musicians under two big tents, so it can be held no matter the weather. The family-friendly event will also bring in food trucks to keep event goers well fed. Don’t miss your chance to hear 2015 Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee Elvin Bishop live!
Head to Cary Park Lake for a 5K run or walk around the lake, and be prepared to be blasted with color while you help raise money for the under privileged in India. The color run, while it does have winners, is more about having fun and supporting a worthy cause than it is about racing for glory. Be sure to bring a white shirt to keep as a souvenir after it gets blasted with color during the run!
Worldovercomers Christian Church is bringing Marcus Anderson to Durham on Friday, May 20th for a 7:30 concert. Tickets are just $10 and include a free coffee sample bar when they arrive, starting at 7. The concert will feature Anderson’s saxophone renditions of popular worship songs.
Which of these are making it on your spring calendar? No matter which you choose, the exceptional weather and friendly people of our community will make it a fun event!
