There is no time to waste when summer comes! Everyone is throwing a party. There are food festivals, beer festivals, ethnic festivals and outdoor art fairs.
The River Campus Summer Arts Festival in downtown Cape Girardeau is a free community festival and you are invited! Activities will include live music, dance, theatrical performances, magic, visual arts displays and hands on family friendly art expression activities. The museum is open and musical instruments are on display. There will also be an animal petting zoo, creative writing workshops and an art contest where each artist will be given 24 soft pastels and a concrete space. The art drawing will be judged by local artist Craig Thomas, professional street painter. There will be many other hands-on activities throughout the campus.
For those who enjoy aviation, The Flying Legends of Victory Tour “Maid in the Shade” will be at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport, beginning on June 18 and running through June 24, 2018. This fast muscular aircraft was made famous in the 1942 Doolittle Raid during WWII and will offer tours and rides.
