The Week Ahead: Friday, June 30 through Thursday, July 6, 2017
June 30, 2017
What more does one need to say about the Week Ahead beyond that it brings us the 4th of July Weekend and delivers us into the heat of the summer season. The events below truly only scratch the surface of each day’s offerings. Among the other events making their annual one-time appearance on the calendar are the MV Museum’s 19th Annual Evening of Discovery and the exciting Stars + Stripes Festival (this year featuring Carly Simon and Friends) both of which take place on July 1. On July 4, Murdick’s Run the Chop Challenge kicks off the holiday itself. Be sure to check our Calendar of Events when planning your weekend and enjoy the Week Ahead!
