WeIcome
to the Summer 2012 WQAD/Terry Swails Family Fun Guide, a special supplement to the River
Cities’ Reader’s Summer Guide. We have separated our children’s calendar from the regular sea-
sonal guide and made it easier to navigate so that you can find the perfect events for your kids
and family. We’ve also added fun activities related to some of the hundreds of things happening over the next three months in the Quad Cities
and surrounding areas. So any day your children complain about being bored, you’re sure to find the perfect antidote here.
