There are many things to celebrate about summer, but one of our favorite things has to be the excitement of late summer. While the days of the season may be winding down, the energy is just as high with great weather to match. August is chock full of amazing concerts and soon the CID Block Party! Get ready to add one full day of fun to your end-of-summer plans.

The CID Block Party (CIDBP) describes itself as an AAPI music festival. This year is the fourth annual event and it is happening for one day only. It’s all about supporting, showcasing, and highlighting APPI music, arts, and culture.
