Signs of Spring
by Chris Comer
Kernersville is known for its friendly atmosphere, activities for the entire family, and fantastic events. Events like Healthy Active Adults Day and the Kernersville Spring Folly are all signs of spring for those of us who call Kernersville home.
Each year, the second Monday in April is Healthy Active Adults Day. This event brings health screenings, food, entertainment, and businesses together to share their goods and services. This year is no different. Not only will you be able to enjoy the above listed activities, but there will be seminars that will assist you in all aspect of health.
Healthy Active Adults Day is sponsored by Novant Health and they will be offering health screenings such as bone density testing, cholesterol testing, a brown bag pharmacy check, and more. The police department will be on hand to take your old prescription drugs, and as always, the fire department will talk through safety, fire alarms, and rescue.
In the 12 years the Health Day has been in existence, there has always been plenty of food to taste, great entertainment, and educational seminars to keep you informed.
Healthy Active Adults Day is a full day event that will be open from 9am to 1pm.
• Entertainment will include Bingo, with lots of great prizes.
• Seminars will include:
– Falls and Balance at 10 am

Bring your family; each person has the opportunity to take advantage of everything, all day! There is no need to register

• Kernersville Spring Folly; Friday, Saturday and Sunday –
May 1st – 3rd
The Kernersville Spring Folly is a family event the first full weekend in May. Since 1992, Spring Folly has been an exciting event that draws a crowd from all over the Triad. Last year, we welcomed over 32,000 people to our town to participate in the festival. Not only do these folks attend Spring Folly, but they also take in the beautiful history of our town as well as purchasing necessities. We are proud to showcase all that our town has to offer.
Picture this, music on three stages, pop up entertainment at every turn, plenty of food, a classic car show, tractor show with a kid’s tractor pull, and carnival rides! Who could ask for anything more?! The stage at Harmon Park will include clown shows and children’s programming, as well as music. Music on the Main Stage is always exciting, consisting of music genres for all ages. The North Main Stage showcases local Kernersville musicians. We have a lot of local talent and what a treat it is to hear them perform!
So wrap your arms around springtime and embrace the sun shining more, the evenings staying light longer, and endless opportunities to celebrate.
