We are a month away from July 4th, y’all. This summer is just cruising by and you better grab it by the horns if you want a chance at having the greatest summer ever. There’s a ton going on this week and it’s great to see so many charities getting the fundraising treatment. Tag your photos and get featured on Monday. #WDDI.

Splash Day at The Market | Denton County Historic Park | 9AM
One of the great joys in life is going to the Community Market when they have the water slide. Witnessing the chaos and raw community spontaneously erupt at the bottom of the Texas-sized water slide is always some of the great, memorable moments of the summer. We imagine there will be some fundraising for the Splash Park also which might entail throwing a dollar in a jar for the chance to throw a water balloon at Amber Briggle so your Saturday morning just got a little more interesting.
