There’s nothing like a wet, hot American summer. Whether you’re sweating in dry heat or sweating in humidity that you could slice with a knife, you already know: there’s nothing better than these sun-soaked months. Unless you’re in Florida, which is kind of like your whole claim to fame (plus alligators). Anyway, get ready for the best summer yet by looking forward to events near you.
6 Ways To Make It Your Summer
1. Gear Up For A Carnival
Small towns and villages look out: your local carnival is coming to a vacant near you. There is nothing like a funnel cake, a hot sausage, and unhinged carnival rides to get your summer activities on.
2. Celebrate Love
Pride parades are coming to cities across the country! Whether you’re joining as a community member or an ally, keep it kind and remember that love is love.
3. Pump Up The Jams
Outdoor concerts may battle the elements, but there’s nothing like listening to your favorite band in a wide-open venue out in nature. Tack on tailgating, yard games, and an ice-cold beer, and you’ve got a recipe for success.
4. Take On Independence Day
What’s better than picnic food, fireworks, and friendly competition with your favorite people? No wonder the 4th of July is a favorite tradition! Chances are your town has its display on the books, so check your local borough’s office for official schedules.
5. Hit (Or Watch) A Home Run
Few things say “summer” like baseball. Whether you’re partial to the major leagues or the local minor or draft leagues, there’s fun to be had at any stadium. Make a day of it with your friends and family and get those vocal cords warmed up ahead of the 7th inning stretch.
6. Tough Mudder’s U.S. Events are ON
