    The weather should be nice, favorite spots are open again and pranks are in the air. Enjoy the day!

    Play a practical joke on your kids. This year, freezing their cereal, toilet paper in the shoes and jello juice look like favorite pranks to play on kids.
    Celebrate the opening of the outdoor playground at Smith Playground! The uber-fabulous outside playground is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Giant slide and all. Hooray! Hooray!
    Another favorite opens for business today. Stop by the Trolley Car Ice Cream Shoppe in Mt. Airy between noon and 9 p.m. to celebrate April and Spring with a free water ice!
