Daylight savings time is a construct created by farmers that we still implement to this day. The old term ‘Fall back, Spring forward’ is one that comes in handy every March and November. While some love the extra sunlight in the morning, there is something unique about getting a few extra hours of daylight in the evening. Dinner can be enjoyed outside, and after school sports can be accompanied with the ambient lighting of sunset. Similar to fall, spring holds onto a brisk chill in the air while letting us feel the warmth of summer rapidly approaching. This spring, Carlsbad’s calendar is chock full of fun activities that will make the most of the warming weather and encourage you to shake off the winter blues. See below for a list of Carlsbad’s best spring events this year.
Walk MS is one of the largest gatherings in the MS movement. On Sunday, April 28th Carlsbad will be hosting the 2019 walk to bring together the community of MS patients, families, and supporters. All of the money contributed to walkers is used to support the cause. The walk will have two available routes. The one-mile route is perfect for families and those who need assistance keeping pace. The three-mile route is a longer commitment with scenic views along the Carlsbad coastline. Families and friends can combine forces and provide strength in numbers, creating memories and pooling fundraising efforts. The National MS Society works tirelessly to change the world for people with MS. Their MS Navigators help people living with MS navigate the world with their diagnoses and their funding helps support over 360 research initiatives that seek to find a cure for MS. Grab your coworkers, friends, and family and sign up to take part in the walk this April. Your participation will be a good opportunity to get moving while supporting a great cause.

With more and more sunlight available in our days, it is impossible to stay inside for too long. At the Carlsbad Flower Fields, the bursts of color fanning out in all directions from the ranunculus blooms motivate a spirit of exploration. This April, the Flower Fields are hosting a number of events to bring in the warmth and anticipation of spring.
The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner is a multi-course artisan meal that comes complete with wine and beer pairings, as well as a flower-themed cocktail.
