The Ten “First Days of Summer” in Quincy
Yeah, it's a little cold out there today. Doesn't much change the fact that summer in Quincy is just around the corner...sort of. Here in the Gem City, we ease into summer a little at a time. That being said, one "first day of summer" just doesn't cut it. Instead, I've put together a list of ten:
I could use a break from political mud-slinging. I’m ready for the real thing. No better place for that than Quincy Raceways in the summer.
As the trees start blooming, there’s nothing quite like this uniquely-Quincy summer staple on Maine.
Home to some of the best locally-grown produce around, the Farmers Market runs every Saturday through October in historic Washington Park. Summer is in the air!
Olympic legend Jackie Joyner-Kersee is back for her seventh year as Race Marshal for the annual fundraiser run.
Summer in Quincy starts when the Gems say it starts. End of discussion.
Now we can’t very well have summer without a pool, right? (RIP Wavering Aquatic Center)
Because shutting down city blocks for a nationwide streetball tournament anytime other than summer would be ludicrous.
Wait, June? Really? That seems pretty late. But okay, whatever. Summer vacation is officially in full swing. It's definitely summer now.
Pack your cooler and dust off the bag chairs. Summer is here and Blues is back, baby!
Seriously? School has ended. Pools are open. Baseball is underway. I have eaten WAY too many hot dogs. And the earth FINALLY decides that summer can start. Sorry, planet, but Quincy says you’re a little late to the block party on this one.
