Summer is here!
After weeks and weeks of awkward weather – really hot to really cold – it seems that summer is here to stay. Iowa City has kicked off its Summer of the Arts and just this past weekend was Iowa City Pride!
The summer brings a refreshing feel to the community. Everyone always seems to be outside. Last night I was reading in the park and there were so many students and families grilling, playing sports, or just soaking up the sun. I love it!
In a few weeks we will have Jazz Festival which falls on the 4th of July weekend. The entire downtown is closed off and there is non-stop music and food. It is so reflective of the community and culture in Iowa City.
If I could only use one word to describe Iowa City in the summer it would be Music. There are festivals every few weeks and every Friday and Saturday night there is a free concert series in the Pedestrian Mall for the community to enjoy.
I hope the weather stays sunny and warm without the humidity. It has been very non-Midwestern!
