Happy Summer Everyone! School is out and it’s time to go out and enjoy all the great things Modesto has in store for this year.

Okay, we all know Star Wars and we know George Lucas, but did you guys know that’s he’s FROM Modesto. Yeah, his movie American Graffiti was directly inspired by the events of his childhood! But that’s not all! On June 7th, George Lucas will be BACK in Modesto as the Grand Marshall of the parade in Downtown Modesto. This is truly a historic and amazing event so make sure you check out all the happenings this June. Whether you’re a girl or a boy, everyone can enjoy the aspects of Graffiti Summer. Boys love the cars and girls love them too (and the cute vintage dresses and handsome boys!) and there are so many events to get involved! There’s the Graffiti Car Show on June 8th and 9th, so bring your family and check it all out at MJC.

If you’re a sports fanatic, then come out and enjoy the Modesto Nuts games out at John Thurman Field! Not only is there great baseball and tons of tasty food, but at the end there is a brilliant and beautiful fireworks show that completes the night! I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty cute date night…just a little advice boys! Check out the schedule and grab your mitt to enjoy our local team. Remember to be safe, explore new parts of your hometown, and stay cool during the Summer of 2013. It’s going to be amazing! I can feel it!
