March comes in like a lion with celebrations for Easter, St. Patrick's Day and some super cheesy activities. 

Say goodbye to the cold season at Winter Festival Bonfire & Fireworks and hello to springtime holidays with METC's St. Patrick's Day Celebration and DiDonato's Easter EGGspress. March becomes a bit cheesy with festivities like The Big Cheese: Storytime and Craft and Mac & Cheese Mayhem Festival.
