Spring is in the air

Spring into a city with adventure

We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.

~ Gary Zukav

The smell of the rain, the kaleidoscope of colors are emerging and this season we call spring is upon us. Come along with us as we embark on a new journey and welcome spring in the city of Thomasville. You may wander among the buds on the trees or the flowers taking their place as they begin to display their beauty. The uniqueness of our murals await your visits and our Historical Walks are here to journey upon.

Get ready to mark your calendars with what this city has promised to be a great season filled with adventure. Are you looking for a 5k, an Easter Bunny or a Movie at PACE Park? Are you a Train Seeker or an Easter Egg Hunter? Perhaps you enjoy Outdoor Shopping Events or Time On A Farm. Visit The Davidson County Airport for a two day Aviators Rendezvous. Community Parks, is that your thing? Well, then Party In The Park is for you! Thomasville Tourism is the hub of all the exciting new events heading your way. #THOMASVILLEGO
