Spring Fever is in the Air in St. Charles

St. Charles, Illinois, is Starting to Feel Like Spring is on the Horizon

Spring Fever is in the Air!

The Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau has long been a community-focused organization that offers unbiased information to various consumer groups that are looking to find hotel and entertainment information in the St. Charles area. Since its inception in 1983, the GSCCVB's focus has been to deliver qualified destination information to families, individuals and groups that are looking to plan excursions into the St. Charles area.

It's almost time to hang up those winter coats, break down the doors and head outside for some fun in the sun. The season of flower blossoms, pastel colors, playoff basketball, the start of the baseball season and Easter egg hunting is upon us. The first day of spring was March 20 and everyone in the St. Charles area is celebrating.

This is one of the longest-running, best antique and collectibles flea markets in the world. It has been the place for people to come and enjoy the fun of searching and finding the one thing they have sought for ages with hundreds of dealers inside, outside and under sheds. People say that if they made it, shoppers will find it at Kane. Saturday, 12-5 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Stop by and enjoy the hunt for that next treasure under the fair skies of spring.

The show begins at 8 p.m. The ABBA Salute is quite literally the most accurate tribute to the band in the country.

Fronted by two dynamic ladies with angelic voices and backed by a group of world-class musicians, the music of the greatest pop band in history comes to life in a Las Vegas style-show that mesmerizes the viewer, young and old alike.
