Hello, everyone. Well, you can certainly tell Spring has sprung in Sebastian.
There is so much going on here in April.
If you get a chance, visit the St. Sebastian Catholic Church on U.S. 1. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., it is having its first Saturday of the month flea market. There will be lots of great things, like antiques, collectibles, crafts, plants, household goods and more.
While you're out enjoying all the great weather, be sure to stop by the Craft club show on Saturday. It will take place in Riverview Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., so you'll have plenty of time to browse. This show will have a selection of juried handmade arts and crafts. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds is going towards local charities.
Stick around afterwards for the Concert in the Park. The country group the Andrew Morris Band will perform from 5:30 to 8 p.m. There are more concerts taking place all month long here, so dust off your lawn chair and put it in the car so you sit back and enjoy some local talent.
What's great about this is that it's all free. The concert series is put on between the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Sebastian. Also, the series is sponsored by Bay Street Pharmacy and Home Health Care, Indian River Medical Center, Oculina Bank and Sebastian River Exterminating.
So if you get a chance to visit these businesses, take a moment to thank them for wanting to be a part of bringing fun things to the area.
If you are still looking for something to do on Sunday, head over to the Laura Jackson Home on the Environmental Learning Center Campus in Vero. They will be holding its third annual April poetry and barbecue event in honor of National Poetry Month. Cost is $25 per person, but it's for a good cause, and you get to hear from a variety of local and state poets.
