It seems like only yesterday that summer was approaching. I can hardly believe that July is over in a few short days and August will be upon us. Never fear Galena has so many wonderful things to do every month of the year. Here are some fun and exciting things to see and do on your getaway this August.
Jo Daviess County Fair is this August 2-4th. What a wonderful opportunity to go to the carnival, play games, listen to music, and eat some yummifications. Bring the kids, have a girls or guys retreat, or stroll the park hand in hand with that special someone (maybe you can win them a prize).
