Summer is here!

category icon Posted in General

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!

    It’s that small park over by Dodge Street and the elementary school.
