What Else is Happening?
📚 Book Lovers Day
This Friday is the perfect day to drop everything and curl up with your favorite book (or e-book reader). Kick it up a notch by jumping into the tub or jacuzzi for the ultimate reading experience.
🎶 OutsideLands Festival
The festival takes over San Francisco this week in what's described as a party for all the senses. Elevating your auditory senses is a awesome line-up of musicians that includes Paul Simon, childish Gambino, and Kacey Musgraves.
🌕 Mercury at Greatest Western Elongation
This week is the best time to view Mercury as it'll be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky.
🎒 Dora and the Lost City of Gold Premieres
If live-action remakes are your jam, then grab your backpack because Dora the Explorer hits the big screen this week. We're most excited to see Danny Trejo’s take on the voice of Boots (Dora's Pet Monkey).
🌎 International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples
Throughout history the rights of indigenous people have been violated through suppression of their identity, way of life, and their rights to traditional lands. This holiday is to bring awareness that special measures are required to protect their rights and culture.
