My, how time flies! Tomorrow marks the start of May, and we have a new issue of Columbus Parent full of great stories and activities for the whole family.

The school year is drawing to a close, and those older kids are about to graduate high school We've got tips and hints on how to throw a fun party to celebrate your graduate and their accomplishments.

Need a mini vacation right here in Columbus? Check out our neighborhood spotlight on Easton Town Center. You'll find plenty of information on family-friendly stores and restaurants. (We hear from our Eating Out with Kids review that the new Flip Side burger joint has great French fries!)

Finally, the Out & About calendar has nearly 200 things to do this month, and we've got some neat Best Bet events: WildZFest, anyone? The free festival features animals from the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and kicks off the summer season at The Wilds in Cumberland.
