egg clip artWith the warmer weather not too far ahead (think Spring!) come nice opportunities to get out and about. We know there are fun festivals, celebrations, and other reasons to get the family out of the house across the Piedmont Triad – from Greensboro to Winston-Salem to High Point and all points in between. Read on for a small selection of Easter Egg Hunts and other Easter events we’ve heard about, and if you know of others we should add, comment to let us know. And if you're into arts and crafts or just love a good local community festival, check out our post on Craft Shows, Flea Markets, and Spring Festivals in central NC and southern Virginia.

And of course, if springtime brings a change in employment, relocation to a smaller or larger home, or a move away from the area, please let The Vincent Group at GreatNest help you buy and/or sell your home. We’d be honored to be your real estate agency of choice, and we are confident we can save you money!
