This weekend was the Arnold Classic, with an expected 175,000 people watching people strut and sweat. After the body builders leave town today, the different venues in Columbus will be preparing for a new round of events for the weekend of March 8 through March 10, 2012. We expect a much quieter weekend ahead for an opportunity to visit several spiritual events.
March 8, 2013 has two events that are both entertaining and uplifting. The International Women’s Day events are scheduled at the Mckoy Center in Hilliard from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. This day celebrates the accomplishments of women in many different areas.
