Bucket List Events

Compiled and edited by James Hodges

Ever feel like the days are passing you by, leaving you without any tangible stories to tell? Sometimes our day-to-day lives can be rather unfulfilling. We have a limited amount of time and with busy schedules and it can feel like we’re not experiencing all that we should be. A road map can be the best way to add excitement, so our team at TicketNetwork got together and compiled a bucket list of events we want to see live.


All American Summer

Leading in to the July 4th holiday, everyone will be planning barbecues, parties, and fireworks to celebrate Independence Day here stateside. And with all the pomp and circumstance comes some time to reflect on what it means to be American. For us, we’ve compiled a list of some quintessentially American activities that you can enjoy this summer, and every other!

Racing flag

I went to my first NASCAR event last summer; it was a surreal experience because I expected it to be boring with cars just taking left turns at 200 MPH. However, I was blown away by how enthusiastic the fans were for the drivers they followed, as well as the atmosphere all over the area.

As soon as you come in through the parking lot gates there are massive rows of RV and campers staked out with their tailgating equipment in full swing. I expected people would keep to themselves and families, but during my first five minutes of walking around the tailgating area people would offer me a cold drink and ask what racer I was cheering for. A bit embarrassed, I would tell these kind fans that it was my first experience at NASCAR. As soon as I said that, they jumped up and were so excited to tell them about the sport and what drivers to watch for. I’ve never had this level of enthusiasm and kindness at any sporting even till now.
