Kids, get out of the house this weekend. I promise, it's good for you. Here's how...
What: American Fork Steel Days!
When: today through Saturday, times vary
Where: Robinson Park, 100 East Main Street
Why: A carnival! Rides, food, carnies... Just do it. Also, fireworks, a boutique, a doll show, and more. Tons of entertainment options!
How much: it all depends on what you do. Walking around, checking out the carnies? That's totally free.
What: Spanish Fork Fiesta Days & Rodeo
When: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday (today through the 24th, minus Sunday), times vary
Where: City Park - 40 South Main
Why: Another carnival! (side note: I love summer in Utah Valley.) Plus, their rodeo is a big freaking deal. It's a legit rodeo, and you should check it out. They even built a new stadium for this year.
How much: depends on what you want to do
What: Taste of the Valley
When: Saturday the 21st; 11am - 3pm
Where: Shops at the Riverwoods - 4801 North University Ave, Provo
Why: this is on my bucket list. I've wanted to hit this up for, um, forever. This year I hope to make it there! And you should, too.

When: Saturday, July 14th, from 9am to 2pm (and every Saturday through October 27th)
