Spring has sprung, y’all. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, even if it is a freakish 60 something degrees today. Deal with it and get your Easter on, whose events we’ve rounded up here. And if you’re Jewish, happy Pesach (and keep in mind the Second Night Seder at KKBE.
You know what spring means: Movies in Marion Square, hosted by the City Paper. We’re starting out with Hugo, which, if you haven’t seen it, is every bit as magical as you could imagine. It can win over even the hardest hearts.
And that’s not the only big Marion Square event this weekend. The farmers market returns once again, filling you up with all the crepes and fresh produce you’ve been missing since December.
There’s also a really good art walk this month, with openings by David Boatwright at the City Gallery and Colin Quashie at Redux. It’s times like these we wish we could teleport, since those galleries are pretty far from each other.
The Family Circle Cup will finish this weekend, and if you really just can’t get enough of tennis, check out the 40Love: A Night of Empowerment Celebrating 40 Years of the Family Circle Cup. Meanwhile the Charleston RiverDogs play some of their first games of the season.
The first Charleston Bluegrass Festival will take place out in Awendaw.
There’s still a few weekends left of the Festival of Houses and Gardens. You can also check out the Kiawah Artist and Artisan Showcase or the Island Crafters Guild Arts and Crafts Show.
The Lower Berkeley Relay for Life Fundraiser is giving you an excuse to eat at Chick-Fil-A (in Goose Creek), as if you really needed one.
Seven DJs will come together at Mad River for DJs for the Kids.
We’re in the last R month people. Get over to the Shuck’n Shame Oyster Roast while they’re still available.
Theatre 99 is kicking off its annual 3 on 3 Long Form Improv Tournament with a preliminary round on Saturday. They’ve also got the Funny Bucket and This is Chucktown!
Works by Joseph Haydn will be performed at Seven Last Words.
The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) seems like an appropriate play to see on such a religious weekend, or you can choose between Annie, Greater Tuna, In The Next Room: The Vibrator Play, Mo’ Motown Magic, The Robber Bridegroom, and The Wiz.
Fulfill all your reality show dreams at the Big Brother Open Casting Call.
Hungarian-Australian filmmaker Peter Hegedus comes to Park Circle to screen his film My America, where they’ll also be showing the Academy Awards Shorts: Live Action, and the Halsey will have Sahkanaga.
Get in on the Eat Local Month action at the All You SHOULD Eat Breakfast.
And while it may be Easter Sunday, it is still a Second Sunday on King Street. Let downtown Charleston be your church.
