June is outdoor time for Aurorans with family activities from music and markets to fishing and skateboarding.

Filled with fresh, locally grown and frequently homemade goods, Aurora Farmers Market opened on June 12 and will continue each Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. through Aug. 28. Co-sponsored by The Church in Aurora, the market is held in the church’s parking lot, 146 S. Chillicothe Rd.

Aurora’s free Music Concerts in the Park continues June 19 and every other Wednesday, except July 3, through July 31 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park, on Route 82, near the corner of Route 306.

All ages are invited to bring blankets, chairs and snacks to enjoy the sounds of summer.

This year’s series will feature "Akron Symphonic Wind" on June 19;" Silver Creek Duo" on July 17; and "Chance" on July 31. Instead of July 3, the Fourth of July free concert will feature the country sounds of "Post Road" from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., just before the fireworks, at Kiwanis-Moore Pavilion, 35 W. Pioneer Trail. For weather update information call the hotline at 330-655-6410.

Aurora youngsters will enjoy Go Skateboarding Day from 1 to 3 p.m. June 21 at Kiwanis-Moore Park, 35 W. Pioneer Trail, sponsored by Martini Skate and Snow. Free and open to all ages and skill levels, the event will include contests, giveaways and plenty of fun.

"Winged jewels of the night." That’s how Moebius Nature Center describes "moths," the focus of naturalist Joe Malmisur’s program at 9 p.m. June 22.

Malmisur will demonstrate how to use black lights and sheets to attract the nocturnal creatures, which outnumber butterflies by about 20 to one. Get ready to observe the beautiful colors, shapes and patterns of these nighttime flutterers, who play vital roles in most of the world’s terrestrial ecosystems as they pollinate a large number and variety of plant species.

Space is limited, so be sure to register online for this free program at mymnc.org. Bring a flashlight, bug spray and camera to the center at 929 E. Mennonite Road, just past Sunny Lake Park up the hill and on the left.

"Bonnie & Clyde: A New Musical" opens June 28 for seven performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. through July 13, and 3 pm Sunday July 7 at Aurora Community Theatre.

Brazen and beguiling, this Tony-nominated story of love, adventure and shameless crime features a thrilling score that combines blues, gospel and rockabilly music.

Tickets, including seat selection, are available anytime at auroracommunitytheatre.com or by calling 330-562-1818. The theatre is located at 115 E. Pioneer Trail. Parents note, however, with a focus on violence, crime and adult themes, the play may not be suitable for younger audiences.
