Ah, school’s out (for a lot of you), the weather’s warmer, you’re having bbqs, and you’re planning trips to theme parks.

That’s a good sign that summer’s here! So why not spend some of that extra time to participate in our:

Sims in the Summer Showcase!

Sims in summer fashion, dream parks you’d love to visit, homes for Sims to stay in during the season, stories of the best summer ever – we want to see them all. Be sure you read the FAQ afterward

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Sims
What do your Sims like to wear during this season? Light and airy? Loud and colorful? Showing some skin, perhaps?

Lots
Your favorite park to have picnics. A summer home. A theme park you wish would happen.

Stories
Do you remember your best summer ever? How about what you did during a summer vacation?

Movies
Drama about the most embarrassing sunburn or music videos featuring Sims having fun in the sun?

And we’ll be highlighting submissions as we go – check back on the Showcase page!

Get your submissions in by Sunday, June 29 11:59PM PDT!
