Hot town, summer in the city, A2 streets gettin' artsy and gntty

By Joanne Alinjar
Daily Arts Writer
While most students decide to spend
summer vacation away from the
Wolverine madness in Ann Arbor, the
spirit of the city doesn't disappear with
the students. In the summer months, Ann
Arbor takes its own vacation from stu-

dents rushing about by celebrating art,
music and film.
LSA sophomore and Ann Arbor
native Neha Singhal said outdoor enter-
tainment comes to life in the summer.
"In June there's something called Top
of the Park. Here, they show movies for
free for the public," Singhal said.

Classics like "Grease,""Butch Cassidy"
and "Apollo 13" are shown outside the
Power Center every night for two or
three weeks, she said. "People sit on
chairs or on blankets - it's a great
atmosphere."
Gia Zanwameeke, another LSA
sophomore from Ann Arbor, visits Top

of the Park each year.
"We've had it for a really long time,"
Zanwameeke said. "Popular restaurants
have food stands everywhere. Then, a
band usually plays and everyone goes
there and listens, and then comes the
movie ... It's really great.'
Top of the Park isn't the city's only

summer attraction. Probably the biggest
and most-publicized event of the sum-
mer is Julys Art Fair, which attracts peo-
ple, artists and vendors from across the
country.
"It usually lasts for five days or so;'
said Singhal, who said clothing, jewelry
