April is coming to an end. With May around the corner, we can be pretty sure that winter is officially over and spring is in full bloom. To celebrate the advent of warm weather, the city is celebrating with a ton of fun events.

I love the way that the city comes to life in the summer. There are so many free events for people to attend, from free concerts to green spaces to lounge into fairs and expos.

I've put together a list of diverse and exciting events that are totally free for you to enjoy this month. So get out there and have fun, without breaking the bank!
