This past Sunday my husband and I went to hear the Glenn Miller Orchestra play downtown for the second year in a row. This event has become my reminder that the Freedom Festival has begun in Cedar Rapids. It’s a great way to ease into the feeling of summer, plus there is good music and good company. Unfortunately, this year the orchestra was only able to play one set before a rain shower interrupted our entertainment and canceled the show.
This event reminds me that summer is already here, and it also reminds me to buy a Freedom Festival button for $3 that will get me into some great events, and also get me free bus rides until the 4th of July! You can’t beat that deal anywhere, except maybe the week that bicyclists get free bus rides…
Along with the Freedom Festival deal, students get a discounted cash rate between June 6th and August 20th this year. Much cheaper than buying them a car or paying for gas.
See official announcements and dates on the Cedar Rapids Transit site, and get riding this summer!
