August is coming to a close, but as we all know, the dog days of summer still lie ahead. This weekend has plenty of summer fun in store with a free concert on the beach, an evening train ride in the moonlight, or you can even build your own sand sculpture.

As for those dog days, you can even take your dog for a swim at a pool party with the family at a fun local fundraising event.

Enjoy!

This weekend will be a feast of music with several popular concerts lined up and even a festival to celebrate a not-so-typical musical instrument. You also have a chance to give back to the community, find out how that concrete ship ended up at that local state park, or maybe you just really want a glass of ice cold locally crafted beer.

Whatever it is you are looking for, we just might have it here for you.
