12 Ways to Keep Summer Alive!

Summer may be over, but maybe we can help keep it around just a little longer with our fun and creative ways to keep the Summer going!

  1. Plan a Backyard BBQ: Gather your friends and family for a sizzling BBQ party in your backyard. Fire up the grill, and serve some juicy burgers, hot dogs, and grilled veggies. Add some refreshing lemonade or tropical mocktails to beat the heat.

  2. Have a Beach Day: If you live near the coast or a lake, plan a day at the beach with beach games, sandcastle building, and picnics. Soak up the sun, splash in the waves, and enjoy the salty breeze.

  3. Go on a Road Trip: Hit the road and explore nearby destinations. Whether it's a scenic drive, a visit to a national park, or a quirky roadside attraction, road trips can be adventurous and memorable.

  4. Host a Movie Night Under the Stars: Set up a projector and a big screen in your backyard or deck. Gather blankets, pillows, and popcorn, and enjoy your favourite movies under the twinkling stars.

  5. Get Wet: Take advantage of the warm weather by trying water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking, or jet skiing. It's a great way to stay active and cool off simultaneously.

  6. Attend Outdoor Events: Look for outdoor concerts, festivals, or outdoor movie screenings happening in your city. It's an excellent way to enjoy the summer evenings with live entertainment.

  7. Create a Summer Playlist: Curate a playlist filled with upbeat and summery tunes. Play it in the background during gatherings or just lounging by the pool.

  8. Visit a Farmers' Market: Explore local farmers' markets and indulge in fresh seasonal produce. Treat yourself to delicious fruits, vegetables, and artisanal treats.

  9. Camp Out Under the Stars: Spend a night camping in nature, either in your backyard or at a nearby campground. Roast marshmallows, share stories around the campfire, and stargaze.

  10. Try DIY Ice Cream Creations: Make your ice cream flavours and toppings at your nearest Marble Slab Creamery. 

  11. Embrace Outdoor Workouts: Take your workouts outdoors and enjoy the sunshine while you exercise. Go for a jog in the park, try yoga on the beach, or join outdoor fitness classes.

  12. Host a Luau Party: Bring a taste of the tropics to your home with a Hawaiian-themed Luau party. Dress in grass skirts, serve tropical cocktails and play Hawaiian music for a festive atmosphere.

Remember, the key to keeping the summer going is to embrace the warmth, sunshine, and carefree spirit that comes with this wonderful season.
