Boredom is banned this weekend. There are just too many great things going on. I've compiled a list of 10 Great Things to Do. Feel free to add to it with your comments.

1. WRAL Gardens. Wow! You'll love the splash of spring colors this year.

2. Neuse River Festival at Anderson Point Park in Raleigh on Saturday. Canoe and kayak races. I'm trying to talk Elizabeth Gardner into going.

3. Sertoma Amphitheatre at Cary's Bond Park - Sunday concert - 3:00P.M. - free - Bill Leslie & Lorica. We promise a great show of original Celtic fusion-folk music and wonderful weather!
