There are lots of great things happening this month, and we're excited to share them with you!
While the armies of Azeroth continue to fight against the Iron Horde in Draenor, and a new patch will be coming out as well (hopefully this month), there are lots of in-game and out-of-game activities going on around the World this month!
Upcoming In-Game Events
Midsummer Fire Festival [June 21 - July 5]
Battle against the Frost Lord, Ahune, who only appears during this yearly event. Play mini-games, win prizes, and have a chance at some rare loot! Remember, the only way to get a Frigid Frostling is with Ahune's Satchel of Chilled Goods!
Darkmoon Faire [June 7 - 14]
The Darkmoon Faire return to Azeroth once again this month! For the first time, the Darkmoon Races are in full swing. Test your skills on a variety of different racing mounts as you attempt to dodge obstacles and zip all around Darkmoon Island for awesome rewards and achievements.
The Darkmoon Faire is one of the best places to get heirloom gear, on top of the toys, mounts, and pets that can only be obtained at the Faire. Also, we heard of a vicious rabbit on the far Southeastern corner of the island. Rumor has it this rabbit has huge, sharp teeth!

This Month in Warcraft Daily
Finally, we've come to our little section. We've been working on our site to make it better looking and more functional than ever. You can already see the new darker theme used throughout the site, and perhaps even a little something different with our header image! The header image will now change depending on what in-game event is happening at the time! You may have seen it change yesterday for the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravaganza, but that was just a small test. The next time our header image will change will be for the Darkmoon Faire.
We're also working on new community features which will hopefully bring WoW players together. More details about the new features will be released at a later date. The Warcraft Daily community forums are also available and waiting for you to join in the fun! Join us at http://forum.warcraftdaily.com today!
