Friends,

Here we are in the Dog Days of Summer. From early July to early August, the dog days signal the time when Sirius – the Dog Star – rises at the same time as the sun.

With so much going on in so many parts of this glorious city, I thought I’d help keep you and the kiddies from missing out. I have compiled a list of “funtivities” happening in and around town over the next week or two.

I should add; I have in no way cherry picked anything on this list from Councilor Aiden Johnson’s website
