The grass is green, the puddles ready for jumping, and spring is fully in bloom! There are so many to honor this month, from teachers and mothers to those who died while serving in the U.S. military. Here are 10 special family-friendly holidays and events you and your kids will want to mark in May:

National Bike Month

Did you know that 40 percent of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles? That means we should all get on our bicycles more! Commit with your kids to ride your bikes as much as possible throughout May. And don't forget Bike to School Day on May 5! Check out Bike Erie for great trails and paths in the Erie region. May 1-31

National Provider Appreciation Day
