Even though winter seems to be putting up quite the fight to keep spring from establishing a foothold, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of activities, outdoor and otherwise, looming on the horizon for Garden City residents. Opening day for the Garden City Little League is on Saturday, April 5 and is the opening salvo for the season. Runners will undoubtedly be carb loading as the Earthfest, Earth Run III will be held the very next day at the Tanners Pond Environmental Center. Not to be outdone, the Garden City Teachers’ Association (GCTA) will be holding its 5K run/walk on Saturday, April 26 at Garden City High School labeled “GC For a Cure,” with proceeds going to benefit Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
And if indoor activities are more your speed, the Garden City Chamber of Commerce and the Albanese Organization, Inc. will be hosting a business mixer at Revel, one of the Village of Garden City’s hottest new restaurants, on Tuesday evening, April 8. And this doesn’t even take into account Garden City’s premiere social event, the May 9 Pineapple Ball that will be held at the Garden City Hotel or the annual Garden City Belmont Festival held in June where residents and visitors alike line Seventh Street to eat, drink and be merry in conjunction with the nearby Belmont Stakes.
