Head to Willis Park on Saturday, March 26, at 11 a.m. for the Spring Fashion Show and Brown Bag.

Downtown merchants will be showing off spring’s hottest looks as models parade through Willis Park. Participating merchants include Allen Sports, Bella’s Boutique, Isabee’s, Polka Dots, Reeve’s Linens and Gift and Special Occasions. The Bean and Isaac’s Bakery will also be selling brown bag lunches at their stores.

There will be a drawing held at the end of the fashion show for prizes donated by each of the participating merchants, so be sure to stick around until the end!

Saturday, April 2, marks the first First Saturday Market. This event, formerly known as Downtown Farmer’s Market, will be full of new vendors and new items!

While there will still be plenty of locally made and grown products, the market is expanding to include sales from downtown stores, yard sale items and much more.

And the best part? It’s free to have a booth!

The First Saturday Market will be held on the first Saturday of each month until November.

Contact Dit Albritton at (229) 248-2000 ext. 119 for more information on the event.

The annual Easter Egg Hunt will be back on April 23 at Bill Reynolds Sports Complex II.

The fun begins at 11 a.m. with kids from three different age groups hoping to find the prize egg for their groups. The age groups are 3 years old and under, 4 to 6 years old, and 7 to 10 years old.

This event, brought to you by Bainbridge Leisure Services, is also free, but participants are encouraged to call (229) 248-2010 to pre-register for the event.
