If you’re going to be around in August, head to the Branson Fiddle Festival. The 29 th annual fes- tival is being held this year from the 25 th to the 27 th of August, and will be taking place on the fa- mous West 76 Country Boulevard at the Grand Country Music Hall and the Grand Country Re- sort. Of course there will be a fiddling competition and plenty of live shows, but also indoor mini-golf and an outdoor waterpark for guests and visitors that are staying at the Grand Country Inn. Kansas City may be praised for its BBQ, but the city itself has so much more to offer when it comes to events and attractions. Beer is big here, as well. Take the Kansas City Tap Tour, which will act as your own personal guide to all of the local breweries. The guidebooks can be purchased at the visitors center. Collect a stamp at each brew- ery and learn fun facts as you sample your way through the list. Tours are always going on throughout the year, but you will have to check for information on upcoming prizes and special giveaways while on the tours. Check out the nationally recognized World War I Museum, which houses countless artifacts and knowledge about the “War to End All Wars.” Known as a national treasure, the museum has received nu- merous awards and constant reviews about the amazing exhibitions it holds. The Power and Light District is the city’s hub, which hosts plenty of bars, restaurants, and nightlife for vis- itors and locals alike. Catch a movie or peruse through the “high-end supermarket.” Grab a bite to eat at Cleaver & Cork or the Kill Devil Club. The Kill Devil Club is a newer establishment serving up hand-crafted cocktails and small plates. Missouri
