Fashionably late

June 2, 2011
By APRIL DIODATO , The OBSERVER

June seems to have crept up on us, probably because the spring weather finally arrived fashionably late - about two months tardy, to be exact. The summer events season is set to begin which means that there will either be 10 festivals occurring all at once or nothing to do aside from catching a movie or having a beer at a local bar and soaking up the strangely-altered post-college atmosphere. In my years at the OBSERVER, I've assembled countless events calendars and what I still struggle to understand is how ill-planned it always seems. We have so many weekends during which we're hard-pressed to find even a chicken barbecue to attend, and then on one particular Saturday, each and every local festival and fundraiser will be happening at the exact same time. While the sudden influx of activity is exciting, I imagine that its effect on attendance at these events is negative.
