Here at Taylor Auto Glass, we love our city! While we offer mobile auto glass replacement, our physical location and the heart of our company is located in Greensboro. And we know Greensboro is a busy city here in the Triad. So we’re putting together a list of some of the biggest events going on in Greensboro in August. Find out what’s going on and hopefully we’ll see you around town sometime this month!
And don’t forget about all the great stuff that comes with a new month! For instance, the Greensboro Children’s Museum always has a First Friday Special where admission is only $2.00 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, so if you’re looking for a great place to spend the evening with your kids, that’s perfect!
