For the Town of Speedway, summer began
last May with the inaugural Indy Grand Prix and
the Indy 500 on Memorial Day.
As for "celebrating summer"?
Shoot, if you can't find something in this
town to interest you, then it's you that has a problem.
We're already in the throes of numerous athletic
events - cycling, swimming, running;
food festivals from the innocuous church ladies
and their strawberries and cream, to what seems
to be any excuse to down buckets of beer
and myriad deep-fried foods on a stick.
There's church league softball and
minor league baseball, as well as the city's
new professional soccer team, the Indy Eleven.
Musical performances ranging from genteel classics
performed by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra
to raunchy pyrotechnics of last gasp middle-aged
hard rock bands will dance their way
through town, with the Indy Jazz Fest spreading
into an increasing number of venues later
in the season. Yep, there's plenty to do.
Some mornings though, I just like to get up early
to enjoy summer's golden light.
From the added glow to the little window display
in a Speedway shop, and to the fiery reds
of this homeowner's house and car, summer's
colors are celebrations all by themselves.
