The world around us truly comes alive during the summertime. It’s as though customer service and marketing teams of our favourite local haunts suddenly switch gears and level up on the creativity to bring us a summer of fun-filled events and activities to make each summer even better than the last.
It’s not just the bars and tourist attractions who want to cash in on the summer fun though. We as individuals discover a new spark of enthusiasm and find ourselves coming up with weird and wonderful ways to celebrate the sunshine, embrace warmer temperatures and brighten up our down time to create a life filled with joy and excitement.
