Spring has officially sprung! Despite the rainy forecast, we're taking a moment to stop and smell the roses (and daisies and dahlias). Here are our favorite thing about our favorite season:  

1. We've got two words for you: baseball season

2. Spring marks the sun-kissed return of TreasureFest (formerly the Treasure Island Flea Market), the last weekend of every month. 

3. From the Cherry Blossom Festival (April 14–22) to Carnaval (May 26–27), street festivals are back. 

4. Stow Lake is full to the brim and perfect for paddle-boating again. 

5. Off the Grid is back at Fort Mason on Friday nights. 

6. Celebrities arrive en masse for the San Francisco International Film Festival (April 4–17.) 

7. Local chefs get creative with fresh Spring ingredients at all our favorite SF restaurants

8. There are hardly any tourists in town. Visit your favorite tourist traps and Napa wineries without the lines. 

9. Nearby parks are bursting with spring blooms, making spring a perfect time to resume your local hiking adventures

10. Weekends in Dolores Park return to full, fabulous capacity.

11. Let's be honest. We all just got super excited about Bay to Breakers on May 20.
