AVALON — As winter fades away, spring beckons a time of so many things to anticipate – beautiful weather, fresh flowers, longer daylight hours, the first impending signs summer is coming soon, gorgeous boating weather and, of course, Catalina Island’s Spring Fest.
Spring Fest will return to Avalon on March 29, taking place from 5-9 p.m. on Front Street. This annual event brings the Catalina Island community together to share in food, games, prizes, arts and crafts and music, all locally based. Vendors will set up their booths lining Front Street for locals and visitors to browse.
In coordination with Spring Fest, the Community Easter Egg Hunt will be held on the lawn at Descanso Beach Club, March 31. Participation is free and the event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon. The Teen Center at Avalon Community Church will also host a pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to noon; the breakfast is $5 per person.
Boaters, both local and visiting, may find this is the perfect chance to take a short sea voyage to Catalina. For those who remember the proverb, “In like a lion and out like a lamb” – referring to the changeable weather in March – perhaps Spring Fest serves as a reminder this is a wonderful time for sailors to enjoy the gusty winds on the ocean as they gear up for summer regattas.
