Marching On

No. 1
The annual Greenwich St. Patrick’s Day Parade will start at Town Hall at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 20. Dress the kids in green, settle into a prime spot on the Avenue and watch the local groups march on by. The day promises plenty of Celtic music, food and good Irish cheer for all!

March is National Nutrition Month. A great way to teach the kids about eating well is to visit a local farmers’ market. Two fun options are Mike’s Organic Warehouse and the Sam Bridge Winter Farmers’ Market, running every Saturday through May 8. Roam the stands and aisles with the kids and let them help you pick out fresh and healthy ingredients to bring home for some cooking fun. Also, on Wednesday, March 30, the Greenwich Botanical Center will host an interview with Dr. Katie Takayasu. Dr. Takayasu is an integrative medicine doctor who has a passion for plant-rich cooking and finding life balance.;;

There are plenty of ways to get artsy in town. One easy way is to grab a cup of coffee and stroll the Avenue, visiting our local galleries that offer everything from pop art to classic paintings and sculptures.

To meet other families in town who share an appreciation for the art world, join the Bruce Contemporaries. Throughout the year the group hosts art events at the museum as well as offsite locations.

You can also head to backcountry for some spectacular contemporary art. Book a visit to The Brant Foundation Art Study Center. The center offers a variety of stunning exhibitions throughout the year. Currently it is hosting a survey of paintings by artist David Salle. Admission is free but reservations are required. And to spark your little ones’ creativity, art programs for kids can be found at the Greenwich Art Society.;;

Enjoy Outdoor Dining Again
Celebrate GREENWICH magazine’s Greenwich Restaurant Week (Monday, March 28 through Sunday, April 3) and support your favorite restaurants by booking a reservation at any one of the participants. Many of our go-to’s have plenty of outdoor dining (and heaters when necessary), and spring is the perfect time to enjoy an al fresco meal. And be sure to get your tickets for the Restaurant Week kickoff party at the JHouse on March 29.
