My family will be in Greensboro beginning next Friday April 22nd through April 26th.
I grew up in Greensboro, but cannot think of anything for my wife and 2 year old son to do while there.
Are there any kind of activities (festivals, etc) going on in the Triad next weekend?

I was just checking out the first link before I posted my question.
I did not see much of interest for the dates I will be there.

The Natural Science Center is a good family activity.

If nothing special is going on, City Lake Park in Jamestown is a great place to hang out. Lots of great activities for kids, like a boat or mini-train ride, fishing, putt-putt, and more.

I'm sure the farmer's market (linked above in Deacon's post) will have something special going on given that it's Easter weekend. It's a great place for very young kids--full of colors and tastes and people to catch their interest.

My mother already has that planned for our son on one of the days.
I went there so many times when I was a kid it won't be much new for me to see, unless it's changed dramatically recently.

Actually, the BBQ Cook-Off starts today, 4/22, and is also going on tomorrow, 4/23 but this is the very 1st one. From what I've read about it, you will be able to do tasting.
