Champaign-Urbana Weekend Planner – Farewell, July

Families can choose from a myriad of events and activities this week in Champaign-Urbana

We know, we know… we’ve been giving you plenty of back-to-school-related articles on over the past few weeks. But that doesn’t change the fact that we’re still enjoying the fun of summer, like the Champaign County Fairgrounds and other one- or two-day festivals. Or one of the other things happening around town (which you can find on our events calendar whatever the season). We won’t be counting the days until the whole community returns to school (we know some of you have already!) but we’ll say we’re going to enjoy every day until then. day ! thanks the Rose Bowl Tavern for presenting this weekend’s agenda
