May 2017 Cover


May 2017 CoverWow, 2017 seems to be flying by… we’re already almost halfway through! We’ve finally come out of the slog of winter and enjoying longer and (somewhat) warmer days. In honor of this awakening, the May issue is jam-packed with goodies that’ll get you and the littles out the door and active in the sunshine, or inevitable rain showers, all day long.

We rounded up a list of our favorite STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, Mathematics) camps; there are so many options that we almost ran out of room! What an exciting time to be a kid and spend the summer learning, experimenting and seeing just how super cool science and math can be.

And then there’s weekends! I’ll bet that you can find something to do almost every weekend for the next few months right here within these pages, between our Street Fair Guide, Rose Festival feature and events calendar. My personal favorite is the Milk Carton Boat Race, where local families can compete and show off their clever innovations!
See you out there!
