Families can choose from a myriad of events and activities this week in Champaign-Urbana
In addition to all of the other events happening throughout Champaign-Urbana this weekend, we are positively blown away by how many different movies and concerts you can catch outdoors during this summer weekend. We will feature a handful below in the events section of this planner, but make sure to check out the outdoor movies and outdoor concerts if you are looking for a comprehensive list of those two types of entertainment.
Don’t forget to check out all of our back to school posts as we countdown the days until our area kiddos are back at their desks in the classroom. You can find those right here.
Check out our entire Back to School Series, presented by Christie Clinic:
