Do you know about Final Friday? I love this. The last Friday of the month, participating art galleries stay open late to welcome visitors. The Q-Line also offers free trolley rides during this. So you can park once, see lots of cool art for free! Don’t you love our city?
What about Food Trucks at the Fountain? One Sunday a month at the Waterwalk, many of our traveling taste sensations gather in one spot. With live music to boot. The May gathering is this Sunday!
Today is USD 259’s final day of school. Which means…Wichita Public Library Summer Reading Program starts tomorrow! Sign up. You won’t regret it.
Need a new place for lunch? Have you ever tried City Life Cafe? Great cuisine for a great cause.
Have a zoo pass? The official public grand opening for the new Tropics exhibit is tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.
Every Thursday morning from 9:30 – 10:30, Great Plains Nature Center hosts the Little Nature Lovers Program. This free event includes games and sensory activities to get your kids excited about nature. (Thanks WOTC!)
Tonight New Market Square is hosting a free concert for Twilight Thursday Arts AMaize. Bluegrass music and interactive art!
One more thing: There are many children in the Wichita area who rely on the school calendar to eat regular meals. I truly love that the school district provides free breakfast and lunch for kids in this situation ages 1 – 18. You can see locations and a schedule at summerfood.usd259.org. Please try to keep this in mind for anyone in your life who could use it.
As always (and inspired by an email from last week) I want to make sure and mention it doesn’t take a special event to be intentional, save money, or love people. Let’s invest in others as we pull weeds, hang clothes on the line, workout, blow bubbles, cook dinner, sip coffee on the deck, or head to the local pool.
Have such a wonderful weekend. Happy Summer!
