The Beijing snow of springtime has arrived, and the warmer temperatures are finding more people enjoying the outdoors (if allergies allow). From bazaars and spring fairs to Mother's Day, here are some events to check out.
Pinotage Restaurant (Lane Bridge Villas across from WAB) is the location for a “Mum’s the Word” mini bazaar TODAY from 11am-3pm. Enjoy a glass of wine or lunch while you shop at the tables of nine select vendors. With Mother’s Day this weekend, treat yourself to jewelry, clothes, bags and more! Also, bring Roundabout donations as this will be a drop-off point. For lunch reservations, call 6430 7010.
Enjoy fun (and free!) musical entertainment at ISB this Thursday and Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. Many of the talented middle school students will perform Into the Woods, the 1988 Tony Award-winner for both score and book of a musical (based on the book by James Lapine; music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim). Enjoy this brilliantly conceived exploration of “happily ever after,” based on popular fairy tales with instantly-recognizable characters. Thursday and Friday performances begin at 6:30pm; Saturday at 3:30. No tickets needed; show is in the ISB theater.
For 15 years the International School of Beijing has staged their annual Spring Fair, arguably the biggest expat school fair around. Over 5,000 people come to the ISB school grounds throughout the day to enjoy a wide variety of food, games, entertainment and more. And it’s free to the public! The forecast looks good for this rain-or-shine event on Saturday, May 12 from 10am-4pm.
