Sebastian, it's time for fairs and festivals

I hope you have time to read this, as this weekend is going to keep you busy traveling from place to place.

From the air show to the seafood festival, there is enough going on in our area to make me tired just thinking about it.

But if you can pencil in a 'must do' or two, please take an hour or so to visit the March Craft Show taking place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Sebastian Riverview Park. This event is put on by the Craft Club of Sebastian, and I think you'll really enjoy all the talent that is available right here in Sebastian.

There will be more than 100 vendors from all over the coast in attendance, and it is free to get in and free to park.

While looking over the variety of handcrafted items, remember that the craft club is a nonprofit group, and any money they make here will go back into the community when they donate to local charities.

Speaking of charities, if you want to be a part of a good cause, head down to Capt. Hiram's restaurant in Sebastian at noon on Saturday.

That's where teams of people have gathered as part of the St. Baldrick's event.

This fundraiser began back in 1999, when a group of friends got together to raise money for children with cancer by shaving their own heads in support. The idea took off, and now the event can be found nationwide.

So far, 21 teams have raised almost $45,000 dollars. They are so close to their goal of collectively raising $50,000, so head on out there and be a part of the fun for a great cause.

See you around!
