10 Egg-citing CNY Events

CNY Events to help end the last weekend of March on a high note.


It’s the last weekend of March. It’s the end of the first quarter of the year. The events keep on happening throughout Central New York.

It’s not going to be a very quiet weekend, and next weekend looks busier. It’ll be more difficult to pick only so many events, which is even more proof that there is too much to fit with consideration to our own personal schedules.

Enjoy this holiday weekend if you do or do not celebrate. There are copious activities with comedy, consumption, competition and critters (and some of them are combined).
