Ready, Set, Summer!

According to the good ol’ Farmer’s Almanac, summer doesn’t technically start until June 21 this year. But we all know that’s way too late around here. Not only will school be out for almost a month by then, but lots of cool “summer” events—like Fiesta and the Waterboyz Annual Art Show—will already have come and gone.

So we decided to go ahead, push things up and let summer officially commence next weekend with the biggest beach party of the year—Hangout Fest 2019.

And because nothing says “fresh season” like a calendar of fresh events, here’s a round-up of this summer’s best local happenings.
