After being inundated with snow and ice this winter, Richmond could use a touch of Spring. As we welcome the month of March, we also welcome the first signs of Spring and the start of daylight savings time. Winter is not over just yet, but we remain confident that it has begun its exit.
As we prepare for warmer weather, we can anticipate more time outside as perfect 75-degree Spring days are ahead. Soon we will be planting new grass seeds as we watch the first daffodils of Spring come up. Richmond usually boasts an active schedule of festivals and activities during the warm months of the year. Right now, it is still unpredictable as to whether these events will be live this year or we’ll have to endure another year of all virtual interaction. The good news is our government plans to have the new COVID vaccine available to most everyone by the summer which may allow us to open up to more normal interaction and begin to enjoy live entertainment and festivities once again.
In the meantime, many of Richmond’s event schedule remains virtual. Here are a few virtual events coming up this month.
- 21st International Women’s Day Breakfast on March 5th at 8 am. Grab your tickets on Eventbrite.
- Richmond’s annual Shamrock the Block is currently TBD. The organizers are waiting to see if they will be able to host this event live this year. If the event is canceled again this year, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day virtually at the St. Patrick’s Virtual Beer & Whiskey Festival. Participants that register can receive samples of different Irish spirits and can taste during the event while enjoying music from Irish rock bands. You can register for this event on Eventbrite.
These are just a couple of events going on in the city this month. As things unfold, we anticipate more live activities as the city and the country gets on its feet. Also, don’t forget to spring your clocks ahead on March 14th when daylight savings time officially begins. Get ready for longer days!
