“March”ing into Spring 57

March is finally here, we have made it through the grueling gray days of February and spring is fast approaching. Mark your calendars, Spring will formally arrive at 5:58 pm on Wednesday, March 20th.  This year you can start celebrating spring on Long Island in the early days of March. With Easter being nearly a month later this year we are in for four weekends of St. Patrick’s Day parades and events followed immediately by Spring and Easter celebrations.
