Join Riverfront Times Press Club. Because No News is Bad News.

Let’s face it: You really put your foot in it this time. Why did you do it? You knew better than to buy Mom a toaster for Mother’s Day, yet you wrapped up that four-slotter and slapped a rosy card on it (you would’ve been better off giving her Hallmark’s sweet sentiments alone). The good news? You can make up for that unfortunate transgression by taking your beloved mum to Art on the Square (618-239-9428 or, happening in downtown Belleville, Illinois (Highway 159 and Main Street), Friday through Sunday (May 18 through 20). During this multimedia art fair, not only will you and Mommy spend precious time together while watching the musicians and dancers, but you will also have tremendous opportunities to buy her something nice, especially since admission to the art extravaganza is free. May we suggest a stunning necklace, a unique sculpture or a colorful shawl to warm her heart? That, plus the meal you treat her to -- it’s the least you can do -- will definitely show her you care.
May 18-20
