This Happenings post will be chock-full of great things not just for this week of June 25th, but scroll down to see some great activities for July 4th as well. This week is full of music and merriment.
StyleBlueprint will take the entire week of July 2-6 off, so have a great week celebrating independence.
I’d like to start out this post with my favorite Fourth of July Find, which hails from Urban Farmhouse Market. Hope they are not sold out yet!
Urban Farmhouse Market has cornered the market on these wooden signs that are both local and timely. They are $52 and would make a great addition to your house for the next couple of weeks.
On to the calendar…..
Monday, June 25
I can say firsthand this is a great concert. I’m showing my age by telling you that I have never heard of the other bands included in this “Outlaw Roadshow,” but I can attest to the greatness of the Counting Crows live. They are playing at the Iroquois Ampitheatre. For ticket information, click here.
