Saturday, May 18
Utica Square is splashed in color once more for its Spring in the Square celebration of gardens, art and the outdoors. The fifth annual festival will be 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the shopping district located on 21st Street between Utica and Yorktown avenues. Look for vendors with the goods and tips to make your own flowerbeds a great success, a photography contest and children’s activities. Don’t forget to look in on the shops and restaurants of Utica Square, too. Also, Utica Square opens its summer music concert series Summer’s Fifth Night beginning May 23 and continues the live music every Thursday evening through Aug. 29. The concerts are free, but don’t forget your lawn chairs. Read all about it at www.uticasquare.com.
