Every July Ankeny hosts its city-wide festivl "Summerfest"complete with carnival, food vendors, live music, parade and more. This year we went to the grand parade with Solon and our friends. It was a hot day so we had to cool Solon down from time to time but he loved it. His favorite were the golden beads.
We went to a Chrisitan concert with our some family friends that night. We were smarter that time and brought our tailgating tent - it worked awesome. Solon LOVES music and was grooving right along, clapping his hands, and enjoying some goldfish snack too!
