This Sunday, there'll be ice cream sundaes, butterflies, music, lemonade and cookies. This isn’t about trip to Disney world, but to Goodwood Museum and Gardens in Tallahassee.

Goodwood Museum is ringing in Spring this Sunday. And just as Spring is often associated with life and birth, the museum’s Executive Director Beth Lewis says originally, the now annual event started as a way to thank a volunteer who swooped in to save the museum during a rough time.

On Wednesday, the Tallahassee City Commission unanimously agreed to sponsor the Saturday in the Park concert scheduled for this weekend downtown. Commissioners approved just under $1,200 to cover law enforcement and general park use. One of the festival organizers, Jean Bates of the Midtown Merchants Association, says she hopes this is just the beginning of the city’s involvement in the concert series, which has two more events scheduled this summer.
