After a week of unsettled weather, we're in for a great weekend.  High pressure will build into the Mid-South over the weekend making for some perfect spring weather to get outdoors.  Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 70s Saturday and Sunday with clouds gradually increasing as the weekend comes to a close, but conditions will be dry and mild. 

If you're looking for a reason to get outside and some fun for you and your family, then consider spending the afternoon Sunday at Memphis Catholic Middle and High School.

This Sunday, April 12th, the school will host their annual Spring Festival with food, games, and live music,   Last year more than 400 people enjoyed the day.  

If you'd like to also get in a little exercise, then plan on taking part in their eight annual Education That Works 5K. 

The Memphis-Runners-Track-Club-sanctioned race will begin with onsite registration and pre-race check-in from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. with the race starting at 2 p.m.

The race begins and ends at the Memphis Catholic campus in Midtown and will take you through Overton Park, past the M on East Parkway, and through Overton Square.  Race proceeds will benefit the school's Education That Works program, which helps financially disadvantaged students obtain a private college-preparatory education and real-world work experience. 

It's a fun-filled day that helps educate kids and helps you get outdoors to enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend.
