On Feb. 2, that famous fur-covered weather prognosticator Punxsutawney Phil issued what appears to be turning out to be a fairly accurate weather forecast – more of winter’s fury for the next six weeks.There isn’t much LVEDC can do about the weather — although we do encourage you to keep in mind that spring arrives on March 20.

Keep this in mind as well: Over the next five weeks, LVEDC will be hosting three of the year’s hottest regional events – and there is no charge for you to attend any of them.
