Yes it's true we have a love - hate relationship with August!  We love it because there are so many great summer days, nights, and events to enjoy AND we hate it because it's the last full month of Summer!  So let's all try to put that bad news out of our minds and revel in the fact that we have a FULL month of FUN in the Sun to be had in Okoboji.
