There doesn't appear to be a whole lot going on in Hamilton this month. Ok, so I may have missed a couple events already by posting this two weeks in. Still, I have a feeling everyone is quietly planning behind the scenes to blow us away in September. That appears to be the trend, anyways. My advice: enjoy the down time. That seems to be my motto for a lot of things lately, but that's probably because it's good advice. That and it gives you permission to people-watch from a patio and call it supporting your community. Ha!
