Happy Daylight Savings weekend. If you are anything like me you probably didn't realize we advance clocks an hour on Sunday, March 12, at 2 a.m. With phone and digital watches that do all the work for me, I typically don't realize until the day before.
Now that you know what you will be doing at 2 a.m. Sunday, it is time to make plans for the rest of your weekend. The list of happenings is quite diverse and ranges from rodeo and barbeque to quilts and crawfish. This weekend's list also covers the whole county from Stockton to Orange Beach. There is sure to be at least one event to add to your weekend plans for the whole family. If not, visit the event calendar at GulfCoastMedia.com for more happenings across the Gulf Coast.
