OXFORD – The Oxford Downtown Council will host its third annual Spring Open House this weekend, kicking off with a free concert by the George McConnell Acoustic Duo from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday on the courthouse lawn.

The showcasing of downtown Oxford is designed as a family-friendly event. Saturday’s activities on the courthouse lawn include a decoration station and free photos with the Easter Bunny from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt.

“The Spring Open House has become such a tradition for Oxford in a relatively short amount of time,” says Mark Huelse, President of the Oxford Downtown Council and Co-Owner of Something Southern. “The citizens of Oxford do so much to support this town, and this is our way of giving back to them and showing our appreciation.”
