A Beautiful Place to Celebrate

Mother's Day (Sunday, May 10) is a perfect time of year to visit Powell Gardens. From 1 to 3 p.m. enjoy a picnic on the lawn as you listen to the tunes of perennial favorite Brookside Brass—a Mother's Day tradition for more than a decade. Playing everything from pop to jazz standards, this brass quintet knows how to please a crowd! Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, and enjoy the show! You are welcome to bring a picnic or purchase food and drink from Cafe Thyme's outdoor grill (open 11 a.m.-2 p.m.).

And don't miss the Bonsai Society of Greater Kansas City's spring exhibit, which is on display 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
