Despite what Mother Nature's been showing us, spring is just around the corner. What better place to get ready for the change of seasons than in the midst of hundreds of varieties of colorful flowers and plants? The fourth annual Escape to Spring Expo hits the ground this weekend, with three days of locally-grown plants, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings and the opportunity to visit some of the area's best food trucks. A full list of participating chefs and trucks can be found at vanwilgens.com. Parking is free, to boot.
