University City will have not one but two spring festivals to enjoy over the next two weeks! Start with Spring Fling, 11-4 Saturday at the Shoppes at Worthington on Harris Boulevard. “It’ll be like a big block party,” says co-organizer Dominica Clementi. Then on May 10-11, come to the 6th annual Mayfair Arts & Crafts Festival at University Place, featuring more than 50 artisans from across the Southeast.

Spring Fling, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, will feature games and pony rides for the kids, music and a dozen crafts vendors. All businesses will be open, including Nona’s Sweets and other restaurants.
Come hungry and thirsty, says Dominica. Visit Nona’s Sweets for its signature bakery treats as well as its salads, grilled paninis and its signature sandwiches. Stop by Tony’s for gigantic slices of pizza. Or get a margarita and a wide range of Mexican dishes and desserts at Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina.
Pony rides will be free, but donations are strongly encouraged. Proceeds will benefit the Governors Village schools. Shoppes at Worthington is on West W.T. Harris Boulevard at Technology Drive. SEE MAP
