“Spring is sprung, the grass is riz”, I wonder where the good time is! I can tell you: it is in Charleston, WV! April is such a beautiful time of year here in CRW. Sun shining, flowers blooming, birds singing, and the restaurants on Capitol St. are setting up their al fresco dining. The days are longer, Appalachian Power baseball has begun the new season at their park, and the always traditional WV Home Show is live at the still being remodeled Charleston Civic Center.

If you are wanting to get rid of that winter cabin fever, Vino’s Bar & Grill offers free salsa dancing every Thursday. You can bring a partner, or you can come alone. It is all OK! There is a very interesting and eclectic entertainment menu this month in town. If you happen to shop at Cabela’s, drink Budweiser, and love yoga, “Redneck Yoga” at Yoga Power just might be for you! There is a fishing rodeo for children at Coonskin, a handbell choir festival and “Bollywood Night”, both at the Civic Center.

This April, Christians celebrate Easter and Jews observe Passover. Later this month, women of the Kanawha Valley will gather at the Islamic Association to celebrate their faith and diversity with the Interfaith Council/High Tea. The Kanawha Public Library continues

to offer many varied workshops and discussions for everyone at all the local branches. Visit kanawhalibrary.org for details of all the family friendly events.

Spring fever usually comes hand in hand with wanting to spruce up our homes and get that spring cleaning done. The WV Home Show 2018 is a terrific resource for ideas, vendors, and pretty much anything you can think of when it comes to building and remodeling your home.

Professional theater comes to town with the live production of “Dirty Dancing” at the Clay Center. The Charleston Light Opera Guild will be presenting two weekends of “My Fair Lady”. The Friends of Old Time Music and Dance, known as FOOTMAD, have two exciting events in April and Mountain Stage also gifts the community with two live shows this month.

When you blend the fun, varied cultural events, sports, and fantastic restaurants that Charleston has to offer, why go anywhere else?

Happy Spring!
