4. TEDx Youth@MBJH

TEDx talks by the MBJH TED-Ed Club are coming to Mountain Brook Junior High, plus musical performances, artists, and talks from various other speakers. TEDxYouth@MBJH, like all TEDx events, is an independent, volunteer effort operated under license from TED because those behind it believe in the power of ideas, specifically student ideas, and their ability to change the world. Get tickets here.

5. Color4Friendship Color Run

Sunday, March 15
1:30 p.m.

Can running get more fun than getting doused from head to toe in different colors? There are just two rules for this event: One, wear white at the starting line, and two, finish plastered in color. Children must be age 6 or older to participate. Plus, Team Friendship plans the run to raise awareness for individuals with special needs. Register at eventbrite.com.
