The sun is out and the birds are chirping! After a long winter, spring is finally here. We have a feeling you can’t wait to get out of the house so we put together a list of 10 things to do here at Smithville. From festivals to games to shopping this there are plenty of family friendly things to do in spring weather.

Call an old friend, bring your dog, or even come by yourself…sometimes just a breathe of fresh air and a fresh brewed iced coffee does the trick.
- The Art Walk
On April 21st from 10am-5pm the Village Greene fills up with all different types of artists. Walk through the Village and see artists display their pieces, most of which are also available to purchase. If you love to support local art and artists this event is perfect for you.
