Montgomery Happenings: March

By Kristin

Hello All!
Its that time again...when I assure you that there are indeed fun things that you can do with your family this month in Montgomery.

In the last two weeks, we were struck down by the flu...not the piggy kind. So what is the best medicine to recovering hubby and son? Some quality outdoor time at the Zoo. We ended up going Saturday afternoon...and it was not as warm as I would have liked. But we bundled up and had a good time. Anything was better than another afternoon stuck inside the house.

So lets see...what is happening March 15-30th here in the Tri County Area.

Friday, March 19, 2010 Local Celebrity to Host Movie Premiere in Prattville
Grayson Russell will be at the Carmike Cinema's Premiere of "Diary of A Wimpy Kid." Russell made his debut in "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby." Locally, he starred in McKinnon Motors commercials. He will be signing autographs at 6 p.m. before the showing of the movie.

Saturday March 20th, If you are a fisher, you and the kids can attend the Crappie Masters Weigh-in & Kids Fishing Rodeo
Located at the Alabama Nature Center in Millbrook. The Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters All American Tournament Trail will host its Alabama Championship and National Qualifying Tournament in Millbrook on March 20, 2010. Tournament waters will be the Alabama River from Goldstar Park in Wetumpka to the down river side of Swift Creek near Autuagville. Daily weigh-ins will be held at Lanark home of AWF and the Alabama Nature Center, at the Lanark Pavilion. AWF will also host a kid's fishing rodeo at Lanark in conjunction with the event.

Friday, March 26th You can head out to Cooter's Pond in Prattville for the City of Prattville's Movie Under The Stars

Attendees will be able to roam approximately 30 acres of aircraft and exhibits, ranging from massive cargo planes to nimble fighter jets.

As previously mentioned, Jasmine Hill Gardens And Outdoor Museum is now Open For Spring, on the Weekends.

Coming next month, The Montgomery Zoo Weekend will be Saturday, April 24th and Sunday, April 25th, 2010. This popular two-day event will run from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm both days.

And mark your April Calendar for some out of town fun...Head up to the lovely little town of Calera for A Day out with Thomas!
Thomas will be visiting the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum April 9, 10, 11, 17, 18. Day Out With Thomas™ is a family event that offers aspiring engineers and their families the unique opportunity to take a ride with the classic storybook engine, Thomas the Tank Engine™ at regional heritage railroads across the country.

I hope there is something fun that you can plan to do with your family.
