Summer is approaching quickly and there’s no better way to spend it than at some local events. There are many different events this summer including parades, concerts, and festivals. There’s something for everyone of all ages.
Another popular event in the summer is the Johnson County Fair. This takes place from July twenty-first to the twenty-fourth. This is a free fair so anyone can enjoy it. They have livestock and a petting zoo.
Looking for something to do for the fourth of July? Head over to Coralville for the annual 4th of July parade at ten in the morning and free family-friendly activities. Stay close by for fireworks at night on July 4th. The lead vocalist from Journey, Steve Augeri, is performing a free concert on July 3rd at eight at night in S.T. Morrison Park.
The North Liberty Blues & BBQ takes place on July thirteenth starting at ten in the morning. This is a family-friendly event that has live music all day long. Kids also love the art activities, inflatable rides, and the petting zoo.
Have some fun at a home Kernels baseball game this summer in Cedar Rapids. These family-friendly baseball games are the perfect way to spend a summer night. There are fun activities, a variety of food vendors, and there’s also a gift shop.
