How has your summer been? We here at Eastbrook Construction have been enjoying all the great weather and all the events and outdoor activities around Metro Detroit. While we really don’t want to think about it, summer is almost over. August may be the last official month of summer, but we’re hoping for a warm September! Wanting to make the most out of the last month of summer we found some awesome events going on around Oakland and Livingston counties! We looked around Brighton, Howell, Fenton, Hartland, Highland to see what’s going on in August and after Labor day! We want to just jump into it, so let’s get going!
