I've been noticing that Bucket Lists are all the rage nowadays. I believe the saying it orginated with the phrase "kick the bucket" and is a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket."
Most recently I have found lots of people making Summer Bucket Lists -things they want to do during the summer (internet search or look on Pinterest for Summer Bucket List).
So as not to be left out, I submit to you the River Region Family Summer Bucket List 2012 Edition:
(Most of the items on our list are free-because that's how we roll. All are in the River Region area. Click on the clickable links in each item for more info.)
Take a walk around Blount Cultural
Park's walking trails and the Shakespeare Garden &
Amphitheater. Then feed the ducks. Have a picnic.
Take a walk by the Riverfront and then cool off at the Amphitheater Splash
