What's On This Weekend: May 10-12

This weekend is all about the incredible moms out there, but that doesn't mean the whole family can't get in on the fun. From bookstores to breweries, the activities slated for this weekend are good for the whole family. There's even a parade and fireworks display on Saturday if you want to feel extra special.

Have a beautiful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and mother figures out there.
