10 CNY Events for June’s Last Hurrah

It’s a wonderfully warm weekend to experience some local events.

Sing with me: Hey, June. Why leave so soon? Things were only getting better. The moment you lead us into summer. You go and leave, and that’s a bummer.

As this month comes to a close, summer events continue to populate. Here in central New York, we’re living it up and taking in all the Vitamin D that we can. This weekend offers a wide variety, so enjoy!
