Weekend Fun For Fans Of Summer

I’m still in an outdoorsy kick, even if it’s getting to be unbearably hot. If you can stand the heat, I found two fun family events in the morning to give you a little bit of nature without to midday sun beating down. If that’s too much nature for you, you might like the rides and music that are planned at the first ever Nebraska Hispanic Festival.

If you’re looking for even more ideas, you can find more events in the post 60+ Fun Things To Do In July.
