WILD Weekend: Spring Bridal Fair (...yes, we said "Spring!"), Greek Independence celebration, Passport Around the Word, and a trip back to the 80's...

A major mile marker on the road to summer has been passed, now that St. Patrick's Day is in the rear view mirror.

This loooong winter finally ends (technically, at least) with the Spring Equinox at 6:45 p.m. Friday evening.

In other words - We're gettin' there, folks!

While a potential mix of snow and rain is expected to hit the region Friday, the outlook for Saturday and Sunday looks good.

Here's what's going down this weekend in The 'Woods...



* Men's Retreat - "Success That Matters" (Friday - Sunday)
* Greek Independence Day Celebration (Saturday)
* Passport Around the World (Saturday)
* Echo's 80s Night (Saturday)
* Spring Bridal Fair (Sunday)
