Pickin' in the Park

Spring Hill's longest running outdoor music series, dubbed Pickin' in the Park, is set to see its second outing this year on Saturday at Evans Park, just off Beechcroft Road.

Set to include a number of different acts, including the Columbia-based rock band Mercury Red, organizers of the outdoor music event invite guests to get comfortable on the grass of Evans Park and bring food, drink, and picnic blankets or chairs to get cozy.

This year also marks the return of the outdoor music series, having skipped 2020 due to the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cars and Coffee

Car enthusiasts of Williamson County will be sure to want to visit Cars and Coffee this weekend, Middle Tennessee’s largest car show.

The event is free to attend, with staff advising those bringing their vehicles to drive cautiously around walking pedestrians.
