Spring Scenes from the City (and a few notes for this weekend)

Dogwood beside the old Courthouse on Gay Street, Knoxville, March 2012

Spring is pretty much here. While all of the trees aren’t as green as they will be later, the dogwoods are beautiful and that pretty much says spring in this city. I’m going to leave you with a weekend’s worth of pictures to close out March and I’ll start your April with a few more. I’m still learning how to use my camera and taking baby steps as I go.

As for this weekend, there are a number of downtown events about which to get excited. Here are a few:

  • Friday 6:00 – 8:30 PM – Spring kick-off for Alive After Five at the KMA featuring Christabel and the Jons
  • Saturday 9:00 AM in the Chamber of Commerce Offices CBID meets to determine guidelines for future grants
  • Saturday 2:00 PM, Union Avenue Books: Author Christopher Hebert discusses his novel The Boiling Season
  • Saturday 8:00 PM, Pilot Light: Theorizt CD Release Party for “Samurai Love Songs” with Theorizt, Hudson K and Mr. Kobayashi. Plan on staying VERY late for this one. $5 gets you in, $10 gets you in AND a copy of the CD. I have it and it is very, very good.
  • Sunday 7:30 AM: Knoxville Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K
I hope to see you at some of these events or just out and about enjoying the record high pollen counts and the beauty that is an east Tennessee spring. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I’ll have more in a later post.
