There wasn’t much to celebrate last summer, with most fairs, festivals and annual events canceled. However, this year’s 68-page Summerguide shows that summer activities have returned. We have a three-month calendar to help you plan your leisure time, plus a round up of live music and art exhibits. There are ideas for day trips, and things you can do right here in the capital city. Take advantage of all the opportunities that this summer will present.
