The 44th Annual Towsontown Spring Festival is this weekend, April 30 & May 1, 2011.

The Festival kicks off with Towson Gardens Day on Thursday the 28th from 10am-3 pm with Wine & Jazz from 5-7 at the Historic Courthouse Garden. Friday night showcases a concert by Mood Swings from 5:30-9pm.

Saturday, the festival runs from 10am-7pm and Sunday is 1pm-7pm.

My son had a great time at last year’s Towsontown Spring Festival at the Moon Bounces and Carnival Games areas — and loved seeing the ponies. These activities are an extra charge, but children love it!

He also loved seeing the firetrucks that both block off the streets and are there for show.

The food is wonderful — the smells wafting through Downtown Towson are amazing!

The Freedom Fun Zone, sponsored and staffed by the Maryland National Guard will have NASCAR racing cars to view as well as inflatable obstacle course and Halo Jumper.

Mix 106.5 has their stage with $2 entry, and Crushing Day plays Saturday 1-3pm, 2U from 3:30-6:30, and Sunday, Mobtown Saints from 1:30-3:30, and Reagan Years from 4-6:30.

Z104.3 is having a Singfest — a singing contest where the winner wins $300 and a trip to the next American Singing Competition!

98 Rock has their Beer Garden for $2 entry, where music & bands play.

There is so much going on, and so many activities for the weekend.

Come to Downtown Towson this weekend and enjoy the fun!
