Say hello to April and goodbye to winter, well at least in Charlotte! We are finally done with the random snow days and the city is blooming, so incase that’s not enough reason to celebrate the month, here are some of our favorite, unconventional holidays to celebrate in April!
As you all know the first day of April is all about laughs and playing jokes on your friends and family. But you may not know that you can joke and laugh all month long because April is National Humor Month. So if you are looking a place in the city to get all your laughs out, then head to the Comedy Zone at the Music Factory or hop on the Funny Bus for a seriously comical ride.
April Fun Fact: April is also Stress Awareness Month, so take some much needed “me” time and check out some of the amazing activities Charlotte has to offer, here!
April is the month that keeps on giving because April 3rd or better known as “Don’t Go to Work Unless it’s Fun Day,” also happens to be a Monday! Attention all bosses out there, this is a great day for some fun team building activities. Check out our Team Building Central for some awesome team building ideas that will ensure full attendance and score you some best boss bonus points!
As we skip a few days, we happen upon a holiday that all Charlotte locals and newbies will love, National Beer Day. Thanks so ol’ FRD, who sign the Cullen-Harrison Act, which repealed prohibition for beer, we could all once again buy, sell and drink beer! If you want to get a look inside Charlotte’s local craft beer scene, check out Charlotte Brews Cruise for a boozy brewery tour!
April Fun Fact: April 15th is known as Titanic Remembrance Day. So get cozy with Leo and Kate and of course, a giant box of tissues.
As the month drags on and the need for summer consumes us all, April 17th seems like a pretty blah day, that’s why is Blah, Blah, Blah Day. But don’t let it get you down. Grab some friends and try something new, like a food tour with Feast Food Tours or a Aerial Silks class with Aerial CLT!
Spring is in the air, but so is love and you may wonder why moreso on April 23rd, well that’s because it’s Lover’s Day! What a great reason to celebrate the loved one’s in your life, cause Valentine’s is so overrated. For ideas for something to do with the love of your life, check out our favorite ideas for a unique date night in the Queen City!
April Fun Fact: April 27th, Babe Ruth Day unfortunately cannot be celebrated by watching the Charlotte Knights (they play out of town that night, bummer) but you can head to HQ4 Baseball and test your skills at their batting cages.
April 30th, National Honesty Day, is a perfect way to end the month! Because if we are all honest with ourselves, April was a pretty awesome month to celebrate! So as April comes to a close and we ready ourselves for May, we also have to be honest and say that we can’t wait to see what next month has in store!
