I love summer. It’s my favourite season of the year. I love the colours, the blue skies, the luscious greens, the flowery reds… I also love all the stuff happening. It is as though this city comes to life in the summer time.
There are a few interesting events coming up in May and I want to talk about a few of them that you may not have heard of.
