Last-Ditch Summer Bucket List
There’s still time to check these fun activities off your to-do list before school starts.
Even as the end of the school year vanishes in the rear-view mirror, and the days get shorter, it’s no reason to despair. You still have time to check a few more items off your “Summer Bucket List.” The events don’t have to be fancy or far away to qualify.
If you’re in need of some inspiration, here are a few of our favorites from around Idaho, Utah and Wyoming:
1. Sundance Institute Summer Series
The Sundance Institute is sponsoring free community film screenings through the end of August. For outdoor venues, guests are welcome to bring picnic dinners as well as blankets and low-back lawn chairs for seating.
The lineup of films includes “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” on Aug. 9, “Seeing Allred” on Aug. 22, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” on Aug. 24, and a community choice film on Aug. 29.
Entrance is free, and tickets are not required. More details are available on the Sundance Institute website.
2. Outdoor Concerts
Both Utah and Idaho offer great outdoor music venues. In Utah, the USANA Amphitheatre’s 2018 concert lineup features Dierks Bentley on Aug. 29, Jack Johnson on Aug. 31 and Luke Bryan on Sept. 21. The Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre in Pocatello is bringing in Stone Temple Pilots, The Cult and Bush on Aug. 23.
4. Baseball: America’s Pastime
5. Real Salt Lake
6. Moab Music Festival
Calling itself “music in concert with the landscape,” the 26th annual Moab Music Festival runs from Aug. 27-Sept. 13 and features a lineup of chamber, traditional, jazz and Latin music. The musical raft trip runs from Aug. 27-29.
