Spring has Sprung!!

Spring has Sprung!

Find things to do near Lake Norman, NC!

Spring is finally here!!!!  Anyone else done with Winter???  Now that Spring is here the calendar is filling up with fun, free, and cheap things to do with your family!  So take a look at the site and grab the kids to find some fun around Lake Norman, NC.

I have new posts going up almost daily with activities and events that are sprouting out all over our area-- Lake Norman Mom covers Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, Mooresville, Denver, and Statesville....with the occasional events in outlaying areas like Charlotte, Concord, Kannapolis, etc.  If you see or know of an event that's coming up (must be family friendly) then please fill out this Event Submission Form.

Now that we're back in full swing (this is the busy season!) please check back regularly to find new events....we also have a calendar page now that I will be updating regularly with new activities and events.

You can also subscribe by email to get regular updates from Lake Norman Mom so you don't miss out on any exciting events that are coming!  And, of course, follow along on Facebook-- just know that you have to click "like" and "follow" in order to see any updates but Facebook still doesn't show everything because I can't afford to pay them all the fees to show you every post so email is the best way to get EVERY posted event right now....don't worry....I won't spam you or sell your's solely for Lake Norman Mom updates.

What's on your Spring MUST DO list this year?
