They say April showers bring May flowers but, April also brings with it tons of exciting events that we know you’ll want to hear about. April hasn’t even arrived yet but we’re already pumped for everything that’s going on in our first full month of Spring. Are you ready for Spring? We are!

The month of April is Earth Month! Take some opportunities to step back and appreciate the world we live in and everything it gives us but also realize that we have a lot of work to do. San Antonio wants to help. On Wednesday April 6th, kick off the month with the film Gasland, a documentary centered on communities in the United States impacted by the gas drilling industry. Continue the theme on Wednesday April 13th with Tapped, a documentary about the bottled water industry and it’s connection to ocean pollution. On April 21st, Earth Day, gather at the large oak tree near ATT Science Hall for a presentation of the William Mulcahy Stewardship Award beginning at 12 PM. Learn what you can do to protect the planet we live on here and learn more about San Antonio’s Earth Month celebrations here.

One of the oldest neighborhoods in San Antonio is hosting a neighborhood-wide yard sale. This Saturday, April 2nd, you’ll be able to browse the neighborhood, bouncing from house to house and sift through the wares. You never know what you’ll be able to unearth from the piles. One man’s trash is another’s treasure and we’re sure that you’ll be able to find something that suits your fancy. If you’re planning on heading out to the neighborhood yard sale, check here for more information. Alta Vista is located about 15 minutes away from the Residences at La Cantera so you won’t have to tote your findings very far.

Calling all fashionistas: if you have a passion for brunch and fashion, Fashion Fiesta is your sanctuary. The Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity # 2661 are hosting the 4th annual Brunch and Style Show to kick off the fiesta. This Saturday from 9-1, get a glimpse at this season’s freshest trends from Chico’s Stone Oak Village at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The Fiesta will also include a vendor market of unique fashions so you can do a little shopping while you take in the newest styles. We’re only a 12 minute drive away from this season’s trendiest fashions. To see more about Fashion Fiesta, check here.

April isn’t even here yet but we’re already fired up for all of the exciting events and festivals that are coming our way next month. What are you most looking forward to?
