End of February means we’re that much closer to spring. And it means the Ozarks is waking up from winter. More and more stuff to do with each new week. Here’s a sampling of what up, courtesy of the convention & visitors bureau:

•FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK is Friday, March 1. Downtown, starting at 6 p.m.

•RELICS has a big garage sale this weekend (March 2-4). Let them tell you: “Unlike their normal booths of mostly antiques and collectibles, during this special event, there will be electronics, clothes, sporting goods, used furniture, tools and more. You never know what our dealers will have unearthed from their basements, garages and attics.”
