Technically, it's not officially summer yet. BUT, the B100 Days of Summer have started and temperatures are supposed to get up to nearly 90 degrees this weekend. I think it's safe to dub this the first real weekend of Summer.

With such a nice forecast, you don't want to be stuck inside doing nothing! Fortunately, there's a lot going on around the Quad Cities. And I mean a lot. To save you some time and digging, here are five of the most exciting things going on!

    Movies in the park

    Taking the whole family to the theater can get expensive, especially after snack purchases. It's much easier to go to a free movie, and Bettendorf has just that!

    It's a weekly event, and this weekend the movie being offered is Christopher Robin. Here's the full line-up of movies for the season.

    Komen Race for the Cure

    This one's a win-win-win. You get out of your house and enjoy the weather, you can support some incredible people, and help a massive cause!

    Even if you aren't running/walking in the race, you can still cheer people on! A little morale boost can go a long way.

    River Bandits Games Galore!

    With all the flooding we've had this year, it's been next to impossible to catch a River Bandits game at home. But with sunny skies in the forecast, our boys are back and there's multiple chances to see them! (Four chances, to be specific).

    Here's the schedule!
