Springtime busy schedules

If you're like me, you start getting excited about all the festivals and events happening in the spring and summer. To help a little with your planning, below is a list of events (ones I know about) that you may want to mark in your calendar. To come up with this list, I was first inspired by the schedule I get via email from Market Square District Association, then I added a few favorites, such as the Lavender Festival and EarthFest, and finally, I visited the City of Knoxville's event listings page. There's always something to do!
