July Around Town

Oh my lovelies, it’s been way too hot! Are you melting? Although the temperatures are rising, Ms. M has remained a social butterfly and has been making my way around the Modesto area to find new things for you to do. It’s always amazing and appreciated when a little bird whispers a new destination or something to do in my ear. Especially when this lady can pass those deals on to all of you. Here’s what my sources are telling me is fun or a deal, but don’t take my word for it! Check it out!

The Fourth of July wouldn’t be the same without the tradition of the parade in Downtown Modesto! Come celebrate the 141st anniversary of an event that has been happening in our city since 1874. The traditional parade route welcomes the area’s finest floats and marching bands in addition to more. After the parade head over to 10th Street plaza for family-friendly games, music, food and more until 3pm. Don’t miss out! More info:
