The flowers are blooming and the sun is shining - it must be the middle of May! 

May is flying by quickly, but it isn’t over yet. Check out the events listed in ThisWeekinWorcester.com’s list of five fun things to do this weekend. 

This weekend is a great time to see what exciting opportunities are growing in the area. Spend Saturday and Sunday celebrating the spring in all different ways, like going to a spring festival or heading to a local anime convention. 

Are you an anime fan? 

Attend a local convention you won’t want to miss! This Saturday and Sunday, Otaku Sekai presents Ani-May 2022. Even though Otaku Sekai is located in the Auburn, they will be using the space All Systems Go Sports Bar on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester to host their anime event.

Come by for an evening filled with exclusive anime collectibles, musical performances, cosplay, karaoke, and gaming activities. Entry is free, and the first 100 people will receive a free prize. 


Make this weekend a treasure hunt! 

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. On Saturday from 8 AM to 3 PM, join Leominster for their City Wide Yard Sale, and take home as much loot as you’d like.

To participate in the yard sale, make sure to fill out the online application. The event is taking place rain or shine and it is up to the discretion of participants if they will be participating in rainy weather. 


April showers have brought May flowers!

Are you a plant lover? Then, you better not miss Plantapalooza!

Plantapalooza is a fun day held at Community Project Inc in Grafton. During Plantapalooza, you will be able to buy varieties of hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes, berries, select flowers, and many more vegetables.

The in-person sale is happening on Saturday until 12:15 PM. 


Celebrate all the buds blossoming!

This Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM, Sholan Farms in Leominster will be holding their Apple Blossom Festival and Craft Show. Enjoy a full day of  family fun.

The full day is booked with activities, including food trucks, crafters, a butterfly release, a scavenger hunt, a giant basket auction, and more! This will be their 21st celebration!


You are invited to a huge shindig this weekend!
