Summer Slump Cure

Events help residents squeeze more fun and sun into the remaining days of summer.

The days of summer seem to pass at an accelerated speed. Though it’s still July, I’ve begun to lament the end of summer. I know I’m not the only one.

Well, my fellow sun adorers, I have a plan. Let’s ignore the obnoxious back-to-school store displays, and our harbored winter boots, and bask in the remaining weeks of summer.

There are plenty of local family-friendly activities left to enjoy this season.

Here are some ideas:

  • Visit the 44th Annual All Kids Carnival on Thursday, July 28 from 3 to 8 p.m. at . The event includes a petting zoo, pony rides, super slide, games, food and more. All are welcome. Admission is $8.
  • Attend the final concert of the Music in the Parks summer series, featuring the 50-member Cuyahoga Falls Community Band on Monday, Aug. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Peninsula Shelter at Water Works Park. The show is free of charge. In case of rain, the concert will be held in the theatre at the Quirk Cultural Center.

The evenings include: family activities at 5:30 p.m., music at 6:30 p.m., followed by ranger-led walks or talks. All events are free of charge. Concerts are cancelled in severe weather. Call 330-650-4636, ext. 228 after 2 p.m. for updates.

The outdoor movies begin at dusk and are free of charge.
