Summer's a lot like that favorite tank top you've been itching to pull out of the closet: It looks cute on its own, but a few extra flourishes would take that baby to a whole new level. So think of this year's Ultimate Summer Fun Guide as a Bedazzler, and each of our daily entries a different gem to glam up your Memorial Day to Labor Day to-do list. You could play it safe with summertime mainstays like the Roots Picnic (June 3) or Wawa America Hoagie Day (June 27), or funk it up with oddballers like the Air Sex World Championship (July 1) or an experimental pop-up dance performance by <fidget> (May 30). Whatever your taste, we suggest adding as much sparkle as possible; rules of tackiness don't apply here. Just promise us you'll take it easy on that tank top.
