Top Picks for Weekend Maryland Events
I can’t tell you how happy we are about the picture perfect weather we are getting over the next couple of days! We’ll be busy but won’t miss a chance to go outside and enjoy nature at its best! This weekend, the DC area will be full of spectators at the Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, the Disney gang will be at EagleBank Arena for Disney On Ice and at the Warner Theatre for Disney Junior Dance Party on Tour! Not sure who’s been but I hear Light City Baltimore is fantastic! It’s on the Baltimore Waterfront and it’s free!
