Summer vacation is soon to be here. That's right, tomorrow is the last day for all University of Memphis students for the Spring Semester. I am glad that this semester is ending. Though the entire year was not so bad as a first year in college. One of the few questions asked among college students or anyone of the general public is "What are you doing to do for the summer?" There is not exact answer to this question. Everyone will have their own answers such as going out away to California or to Florida or New York. They can go on a simple trip of visiting their family and friends that lives in another state. No matter what you do you should go out and have FUN!! Right now I think everyone should be ready for a nice long summer. However, Summer does not officially begin until June 21st. On the other hand it comes early for me and other college students across the country who are ending last days of classes at the end of this month. For background information you can read History of the Summer Vacation.
There are so many events and activities that will be going on during the next few months. In Memphis, there is always some event that is going on whether it is a music festival or a food eating contest, you will enjoy yourself.
The Memphis in May celebration will honor the country of Turkey. The following events will be going on through the month of May:
- May 2-8 - Attend the Beale Street Music Festival and enjoy the wonder music artists that will be in concert in Downtown Memphis.
- May 15-17 - Memphis in May World Barbecue Contest should help you want to grill the best food and compete for money.
May 24 - Sunset Symphony will be held in Tom Lee Park. If you enjoy an orchestra or the classical music genre, you should want to hear them play. The Four Tops will be featured that evening as well.
You can visit the homepage of Memphis in May for more information such as the tickets and the exact day and time of the performances and events in details.
Not is not the only Memphis tradition that is going on, but there are more events for all ages that will be happening throughout the summer months. I only gave a vague calendar of events, but you can always go searching on your own for more information.
What do you plan on doing this summer? Is there a "summer tradition" that you or your family do every year? What's an ideal vacation for you?
