Friday June 21st is the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, the absolute official 1st day of summer.  We  would like to share with you some tips to start your summer off right and keep the good times going for 1 whole week  of summer fun for everyone

Friday June 21 –  Go to a festival!  Nothing says summer like a festival!  The smell of fried goodies like corn dogs & funnel cakes wafting on the air, the thrill rides, a chance to try your luck at a game of chance, what more could you want?  There are several in Cincinnati and surrounding areas all summer long.  Follow the links to check out a few that I have been to and recommend highly!

Saturday June 22 -  Visit a farmer’s market!  A great way to get wholesome, organic vegetables while supporting your local economy.   Make your family a delicious meal that tastes good and is good for them this weekend.  Visit Our Ohio to find a farmer’s market near you.
