We are turning up the dial on Mother’s Day weekend, so if you need a get-away for the whole family, this is the time to plan your trip to Burnsville. (And did you see Country Living has us in the TOP 20 Mountain Towns to visit!?!) If you’re lucky enough to live close, we recommend putting those chores on the back burner. We’ve got fun events going on for everyone.
The Burnsville Fit Families 5k (sponsored by PATH) begins the morning with 8 am race-day registration and a 9 am start. This event is inclusive of the whole family – runners under 18 race FREE and plenty of people walk the course… all in an effort to be more fit. Pre-register by April 28 to be guaranteed a t-shirt. (Parkway Playhouse will have a water station waiting for you just before you reach mile 3.)
Also starting at 8 am (and continuing until 5 pm), the Toe River Arts Council and the Blue Ridge Fine Arts Guild are sponsoring the Plein Air Paint Out. … an event for artists of all ages to set up their easels around Burnsville depict what they see.
Then, from 11 am to 5 pm the Town of Burnsville and the Parks and Recreation Department are having a celebration at Cane River Park.
If you’ve not been to Cane River Park, be sure to check out their facebook page to see what a beautiful place it is. On the 13th, though, it will be extra fun because they’ll have inflatables, fishing, games, free food, softball, soccer and baseball.
And then… THEN…
So… if you don’t have a Mother’s Day gift yet, consider getting her tickets to the show on Saturday or Sunday. Better yet, get her a Flex-Pass so she can see several shows this season. Perhaps… take the whole family out for the weekend.
