It’s hard to believe that this is the last weekend of summer before the school year starts once again. Before heading back to a year full of homework, tests and projects, enjoy your last few days of freedom. Have you done any of the following this summer? If not, now is your chance!
Amusement parks and fairgrounds are a staple of summer and they tend to close once the weather gets cold. Seize the weekend and head to the amusement park with your friends. Scary rides, funnel cakes and prizes await!
The summer just doesn’t feel like the summer if you haven’t been down to the beach or the lake at least once. August is a great time to go because the water has had two months of hot weather to warm up. Convince your parents to have a barbeque or bonfire to celebrate the end of summer and the return to school.
Labour Day Fireworks
What’s not to love about fireworks? They’re like giant sparklers in the sky! While Labour Day may seem like a pointless holiday to students since summer vacation lasts for two whole months, it’s a great excuse for a night of music and colourful explosions!
This may not be the most exciting thing, but let’s face it, when’s the next time you’ll be able to sleep past 7:30 a.m.? Sleep is important and you want to be well rested and alert for the first day of school!
