We know school is back in session but it still feels like summer when it comes to the weekend
Families can choose from a myriad of events and activities this week in Champaign-Urbana
We hope your family has had a smooth transition back to school this week, if you’re in that particular season of life. There was so much anticipation leading up to the day, no doubt, and now that it has come and gone, it is time for some quality family time this weekend. Don’t worry, because when it comes to the weekend, it still FEELS like summer in Champaign-Urbana. So get your swimsuits ready for weekend swim, dust off the lawn chairs for outdoor concerts and soak up these final weeks!
