What is there to do at Hartland Kids Day?
Hartland Kids Day has tons of fun things to do for kids and parents alike. Here is a typical day at Hartland Kids day you may find in 2023:
Start your day at the Shuttle Stop at Lake Country Lutheran High School and ride the FREE shuttle over to the Nixon Park Drop off site (3 minute ride and strollers are allowed).
Stop at the Divine Redeemer booth right when you get off the shuttle for a $1 iced coffee. Head down the path of businesses and see animals, meet princesses, get your face painted at the Team Trimble booth and make take home crafts (to list a few ideas).
Stop at the Lake Country Family Fun booth to get your free swag bag (one per family). There are 250 bags and the LCFF booth is to the right of the mainstage. *The bags are usually gone by 11:00 am. Take in a performance or two at the mainstage which includes theatre, music, dancing and more!
Head over to the rock wall and enjoy a free climb. Meet some more local business, hey, maybe you’ll meet a dentist or find a new hobby you love! Bounce over to the bounce houses provided by Bounce Life Rental.
Stop by the Hartland Family Chiropractic booth and say hi to our Premiere sponsor, who always has great stuff going on at their booth.
When you get hungry, choose from Pizza Ranch, Chick-fil-a or “Rollicious Creamery” Blue Gnome treats serving asian cuisine. Follow it up with a dessert from All the Crumbs. If you get hot, enjoy a treat from KONA ICE. Go pet some of the animals from Glacier Rock farms or the the Waukesha County Parks booth.
Play on the playground or splash at the splash pad to cool off before taking in more shows, dancing to the music and meeting new people. Hartland Kids Day is ALWAYS the last Wednesday in July, so take off of work in advance 🙂
In 2023, participants will have the opportunity to have a picture with our local celebrity, Andrea Weisman, Mrs. Lake Country America in the morning.
Later, COLT, the official bat dog for the Lake Country DockHounds will be on site from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Lake Country Family Fun booth to the right of the mainstage.
Hartland Kids Day Charity Spotlight
Lake Country Family Fun is again supporting the BackPack Coalition of Waukesha County. In 2023 they will be accepting online cash donations and the following for an in-person supply drive. If you’d like to make an online donation, please follow this link.
Here is what your donation (cash or through the supply drive) does:
- Ensures a child can start the school year with the supplies needed to succeed.
- Without the right school supplies, a child’s capacity to learn can be greatly diminished.
- Makes a child proud to have their own school supplies. Every child starts out on the same foot, with the same items needed for the grade and school they attend.
- Reduces the amount of money teachers spend to fill supply gaps that families can’t afford.
- Frees up family budgets that are already strained, especially during these
- Helps our youth grow to be tomorrow’s young adults, ready to face the world.
Our goal is to provide new backpack and school supplies for more than 7,000 students which is a 30% increase from last year. Food pantries in Waukesha County who are supporting the coalition report utilization of their services continue to increase and Backpack Coalition, a program of United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County is dedicated to help support families.
The following items are sought and MUST BE NEW for the supply drive to be brought directly to Hartland Kids Day. The booth is located right at the shuttle drop off at Nixon Park. Prior to the event, you can also drop off needed supplies with Mrs. Lake Country America, Andrea Weisman at her office:
