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 March. 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!
What’s Going on in Greensboro This Month!
The First Friday of every month is for meeting and greeting the artists in your town! Join local artists, merchants, and business owners at City Center Park from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for a look at what Greensboro has to offer in the arts department. Celebrate what makes your city artsy and unique on August 4th.
