Your Hometown: events, parties, fun things to do

An incredible thing about the forum section of a big tech news site like The Verge is that its readers are diverse and are from cities all over the world.

I thought that it would be interesting to learn about what it's like to live in your cities. Comment below and inform us of the different events or things to do in your particular city.

I'll start. I currently live in Houston, Texas. Being one of the largest cities in the United States, there's always something to do. Whether it's attending caribbean festivals, rodeos, or concerts.

This summer, so far, we've had Warped Tour, Free Press Summer Festival, Fourth of July firework show in downtown, and many parades.

Comment below and tell us about your city.
