Starting Sunday, July 31, ColumbusParent.com will launch a new and improved interactive calendar.

Readers still may add as many events as they want on the calendar--for free--but the process for submitting and viewing events has been made easier.

To add an event, simply click on the "Add Event" box in the upper-right corner of the calendar page and fill in the required fields. Once your event is submitted, it should be live on the site within a few minutes.

Looking for things to do? Just click on "Events," and results will appear nearby. You also may search by keyword, location and/or date.

As always, relevant family-friendly listings will appear online. Select events also will appear in our print edition each month.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

• Your old login will not work. You'll need to create a free user account.

• If you have an event you have entered on the previous calendar, it's worth double-checking to make sure it made the jump. We transferred as many as possible, but some might not have made it.

• You can edit anything you post on the calendar, provided you are logged in.

• Access the calendar one of two ways: Go to ColumbusParent.com and look in the right rail or go to ColumbusParent.EvieSays.com.
