And yes, there are a couple weeks of school left, but we are looking ahead to all kinds of summer fun – like visits to Sholem Aquatic Center and Crystal Lake Park Family Aquatic Center, movies at dusk and concerts in the afternoon while we picnic on a blanket.
If you are looking for a comprehensive one-stop-shop for all things summer in Champaign-Urbana, we have that ready for you AND we are adding to it daily right now.
