Summer Fun Guide 2012

(or how to remain sane with children)

2012 Edition

Content may include language pulled directly from web sites, brochures and other promotional materials for the sake of accuracy and clarity. This guide is mostly a compilation with some additional narrative interjected, event and registration information is only as accurate as what has been provided by the event-holding organizations — please verify times, dates and that the event is being held with the organization. I’ve provided contact information for that reason and will not be held responsbile for any changes, cancellations, or disappointments. Your “fun mileage” may vary from my own family’s experience.

This is the SIXTH year for the “Summer Fun Guide” and this is the fourth year it’s been on the blog. I thoroughly enjoy your emails and comments, welcome additions to the guide, and I hope you tell event-organizers where you found out about this! Please share the link to the Summer Fun Guide (SFG) and my blog widely! I hope you take time to read the blog as well. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest as well!

Enjoy — from one mommy desperate to stave off summer boredom to another!

Have an event you are interested in having listed? Contact me. Even better — offer tickets for a giveaway on the blog and I’ll promote it on the blog, Facebook and Twitter! Readers love giveaways!


The Summer Fun Guide contains the following sections, please note that I will add to them throughout the summer as I learn of new things, and I’d love you to add things in the comments section of each page as well:
