Family Events - April Calendar


By Katie M

You've asked. We listened. And now we're delivering a full month of family events in the Triad! This has been made possible thanks in large part with our partnership with Prudential Carolinas Realty. This event list will always be accessible through our Family Events button on the right side of our web site, and it will change out the first of each month. And as always, this list is a work-in-progress and is built on submissions from our readers. We will continue to add the events you send us and we can do so at any time.

Enjoy a month full of family events, smarties! And please email us at triadsmartypants@gmail.com with any events we forgot to include!
