Three Spring Events with Visual Appeal in the Roanoke Valley

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Spring is alive with color - indoors and out! Here are three events coming this spring to the Roanoke Valley.

1) The Greatest Show on Earth swings into the Roanoke Civic Center, Thursday, May 2nd through Sunday May 5th. Remember your first visit to the circus as a child? Relive the excitement through the eyes of your children or grandchildren with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

2) Sunday, May 12th at 8pm, the legendary musical West Side Story takes the stage at the Roanoke Performing Arts Theatre. Enjoy the choreography and music that tell the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria, caught between rival gangs - The Sharks and The Jets.

3) In Blacksburg, visit Historic Smithfield Plantation and tour the Heirloom Garden, or the Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech. In the spring and summer, these public gardens, and others throughout Virginia, overflow with color and creative hardscaping. It's a relaxing way to spend a day outdoors with the whole family.
