I love summer . It ’ s probably my favorite season . It means time to swim , time to bike , and of course , there ’ s no school ! I ’ m going to Nashville over the summer , so I ’ m super excited about that . I ’ m just now getting interested in country music , and Nashville is the capital of that . It will also be interesting going to a part of the country I ’ ve never been to before .
I ’ m going to be participating in the city ’ s theater camp over the summer , too . We ’ ll have rehearsals for two weeks , everyday , and then at the end of those two weeks , we have a performance . The play we ’ ll be performing is “ Willy Wonka .” I ’ m really excited . I love the movie and my sister loved the book , so I think we ’ ll have a lot of fun .
I ’ m also doing an art class at Sheryl Cathers ’ downtown art studio named dabble . Drawing is one of my favorite things to do , along with writing , reading , and theater . I take a weekly art class there normally , but this is really fun and different because it ’ s a canvas class , and I don ’ t usually work on canvases .
The Gilroy Garlic Festival is coming up soon , and I ’ m happy to say I ’ ll be going this year ! I don ’ t always get a chance to go , because we sometimes have something else planned , but this year it worked out ! The Garlic Festival is always filled with fun games , cool exhibits , and of course – mouth-watering food ! I think I might just try garlic ice cream this year . I haven ’ t yet because I ’ ve been just a little too scared to . But I ’ ve heard it ’ s really tasty , so I ’ ll try it .
The farmers ’ market is open again ! I don ’ t go there nearly enough , but I ’ m aiming to visit it more this summer . There ’ s tons of local produce there that ’ s simply delectable and there ’ s always a lot of cool vendors . You also get to buy local and support local businesses in Gilroy .
Gilroy is packed with things to keep me busy , and I can ’ t wait to experience all of it here in my hometown .
