We've already had several beautiful spring days so far, but the fun is just beginning! Our weekend events list is jam-packed with arts, music, comedy and outings the whole family will enjoy.

From Thursday through Saturday, take in the final days of Savannah Music Festival. You especially won't want to miss the two closing night dance parties with Red Baraat, a band known for teaching dance moves to the audience and joining in on the festivities.

Since we're on the subject of music, we can guarantee there are fantastic options every night all over Savannah. On Thursday, Florida emo-pop band We the Kings stop in at Armstrong, and Friday, catch Charlie Wilson of The GAP Band fame at Johnny Mercer Theatre.

Saturday offers an acoustic set at Rachael's 1190 with Zach Myers of Shinedown and Justin Moore of Ingram Hill, as well as a CD release party with local pop/country band Lyn Avenue at Dub's Pub.

Finally, on Sunday, the public is welcome to a free concert at Fort Stewart by none other than Lt. Dan himself, Gary Sinise and his band. "He's a great guy," said Kevin Larson, Fort Stewart public affairs officer. "He's s a big supporter of Army families and the military."

Movie fans, as well as SCAD alumni and students, will want to check out a special sneak preview of "Eye of the Hurricane" on Thursday at SCAD Museum of Art. It was written and directed by newly hired SCAD film and TV department professor Jesse Wolf, and Film Scene columnist Jim Reed has all the details.

You'll find family-friendly fun all over town this weekend, including along the riverfront for the River Street Art Fest and in Forsyth Park for Saturday's SCAD International Fest.

Since there's a trio of standup acts set to cover Thursday, Friday and Saturday, why not make it a weekend of comedy? First up is nationally known comic Doug Stanhope, who's bringing his Last Gasp Tour to Savannah Smiles. Friday brings Atlanta comic Eric Hunter to the Savannah Comedy Revue, and on Saturday, catch rising radio star Kenny Zimlinghaus at The Wormhole. All of these acts will also feature local comedians, so get out and support the city's growing scene!

Finally, beginning with an opening reception and party Thursday, the Jepson is displaying a collection dedicated to the iconic Marilyn Monroe. This event will feature a live band, Marilyn look-alike, food, drinks and of course, plenty of stunning works of art. The exhibit will be on display through the summer, but this party is one night only â¦

I have to highlight one of the fun events planned at the Davenport House for this month. Their Early Bird Preservation Walks are being offered at 8 a.m. each Saturday in April. That may sound awfully early, but I can only imagine how different our city is at that hour. I'll know for sure when I join the walk this weekend; read more about how it goes next week!
