Is it just us or is April and May the longest months ever! We want summer now, please!
In the meantime what we could do is plan ahead for those upcoming warmer months. Summer festivals can be pricey but are so worth it. Just imagine when you look back through Polaroid of all those great times in the sun. Another great thing about summer festivals is that is basically a bundle deal. So your are getting a carnival, concert and some extra all for a single price when similarly a concert can run for just as much by itself! So here are our top three favorites!
July 21 – 23rd
