Celebrating mom can be as simple and thoughtful as buying a card, a gift, a meal or just saying, “thanks.” Last year we did a feature on children who were given a ride so they could visit their moms in prison. Mothers come in all shapes, sizes and interests and for those seeking something special here are a few festivals that have “Mother’s Day” written all over them:
