After being dormant for winter, area farmers markets are cropping up again this weekend in Central Texas. Other area activities include a cleanup initiative in Salado, performances of “Aladdin Jr.” in Cameron, and comedy shows in Temple.

Central Texas is getting an early start on Easter this weekend with several egg-cellent events planned, including an Underwater Easter Egg Hunt and Easter on the Farm. Other events include two festivals in Salado and several fundraisers.

After a year of canceled in-person shows and creative fundraising efforts, Temple Civic Theatre officials are now looking forward to starting a new season.

The Milam Community Theater program has announced its first adult production in over a year will be "Steel Magnolias" and auditions for the dramatic comedy will take place 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday in Cameron.
