Summer PicnicsAugust 7, 2023
August is a month to soak up the sun and continue to enjoy the outdoors. It’s also still part of outdoor picnic season! If it’s a hot day, an evening picnic might be more of the comfortable time to dine. Whether it’s a neighborhood park, while you’re camping or your backyard, it can be a memorable time to bond with friends and family.

More Picnic Outing Tips
Keep your cooler or picnic basket in the shade to avoid worrying about foods that will melt with warmer temperatures. Use frozen water bottles to keep foods cold while also carrying along a beverage to hydrate. Enjoy perishable items like meats and cheeses first. Keep lids for containers for easy storage to bring back home.
