Add some sizzle to your summer nights in St. Charles

It’s hard to think that we are already in July but summer is flying fast! You won’t want a fall full of FOMO for all the things you missed in the summer so get out there and live it up! If you’re not sure on what you can do, here’s some summer ideas to make memories and have fun.

Live it up and Listen to Live Music!

Places like the Filling Station are great to find music, especially on their patio!

The Arcada is reopened and ready for business! Come See amazing shows and performances!
