June: the month where the whole country puts their eggs in the summer basket. We’re going outside in shorts or a skirt, no matter the forecast, and that’s that!
June is also the month where the summer events season gets in full swing, including Pride celebrations in the majority of American cities. To help you make the most of your June, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite concerts and events happening around our Staypineapple locations.
