We really need to pace ourselves, people.
Because if this is what the rest of the summer is going to be like, none of us is getting out alive.
As evidenced by the listings in Friday’s GO! section — right here in the Standard-Examiner — there was a veritable buttload of stuff going on in the Ogden area this weekend. And when I say “buttload,” I’m talking about a specific, precise unit of dry measurement.
(HANDY CONVERSION CHART: Four pecks equals a bushel, 21.7 bushels equals a cubic yard, 13,080 cubic yards equals a hectare meter, and roughly three dozen hectare meters equals a buttload. That’s how much entertainment was coming at us this weekend.)
Indeed, this weekend alone, fun-loving folks were able to choose from any number of exciting events, including:
1. The Ogden Film Festival.
3. The First Friday Art Stroll.
4. The opening of the Golden Spoke trail network between Ogden and Provo.
5. The massive three-day Ogden Music Festival.
All this was in addition to the myriad other activities going on during a typical weekend in Ogden.
Amanda Johnson is an editorial assistant in the S-E newsroom. Her primary responsibility is compiling lists of upcoming events in Northern Utah. And there are plenty of lists to compile these days; Ogden’s summer happenings are keeping her hopping.
“It takes my entire work week — 29 hours a week,” she explained.
And as busy as this first weekend of summer was, Johnson says it doesn’t let up anytime soon.
“Next weekend is crazy, too,” she said. “And I know there are a lot of things for the weekend after, too. There’s just so much stuff going on.”
Among events coming in the next week are:
And the rest of the summer doesn’t get any less interesting, with all manner of events and activities for both children and adults. Among the things to look forward to as the summer progresses:
And I’m quite certain I’ve forgotten to mention dozens of other things waiting just around the corner this summer.
So, what’s the best way to keep abreast of all this excitement? Simply visit go.standard.net. Or, pick up a Friday Standard-Examiner — the one with the GO! section in it. Because, seriously, if you live in the Ogden area and get bored this summer?
It’s your own fault.
