5 Summer Events Kids Will Love image

School's out, which is the perfect time to find something fun for the entire family to do. Whether your kids are sports enthusiasts or superhero fans, there are plenty of things for them to do this summer. Here are our top 5!

#1 Baseball Game

Baseball games are a staple of the spring and summer months. First, there's the game itself: baseball is one of the most beloved sports in America. Kids, especially those on a Little League team, will adore seeing the live-action game in person. There's nothing quite like hearing the crack of the bat or seeing the players we idolize from afar live in person. Baseball games are a fun family affair too, providing a chance to root for your favorite team together. Plus, it's a great chance to enjoy the outdoors on a nice summer day, indulge in concession stand food, and get caught up in the excitement of the experience. (Plus, we may or may not be running a pretty cool baseball promotion to go along with this one. Just sayin'.)

July 2014 Events Image

It's the middle of summer and there are two kinds of people: those who want to spend some time outside, basking in the sun, and those who want nothing more than to take shelter in the nearest air conditioned building. Thankfully, there's live entertainment in both camps this month.

For those wishing to soak up the sun, there are several tours that visit outdoor arenas, like Phish and Justin Timberlake, as well as a handful of outdoor festivals, including Summerfest and Pitchfork Music Festival. There are also baseball games jam-packed through July.

But for a break from the heat, wrestling events such as WWE Background might do the trick, or there are theater events, including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which Neil Patrick Harris will soon be leaving, and Marvel Universe Live!, a superhero-filled, live action adventure people of all ages will enjoy.

Here's a closer look at what's happening this July.

Concerts

Justin Timberlake: The pop singer kicks off his second North American leg for The 20/20 Experience World Tour on July 9. Timberlake will first visit Buffalo, NY, and is scheduled to wrap his tour just before Christmas, on Dec. 20.

What People Are Talking About

Luis Suarez (and other World Cup highlights)

Everyone knew soccer player Luis Suarez's name this week when he sunk his teeth into opponent Giorgio Chiellini during the match between Uruguay and Italy. The weird thing? This is not the first time Suarez has bitten an opponent. Biting someone once is one time too many, but multiple times? Seriously? Suarez was banned for nine international matches and suspended for four months from any football activity by FIFA. Of the bite, Suarez simply said, "I've collided with his shoulder" and insisted the whole thing wasn't a big deal. I imagine his feelings would be a little different had he been the one bitten in the shoulder, but okay. In less bizarre news, Team USA advanced to the World Cup knockout stage. Congrats, Team USA!
