Memorial Day Weekend Lake Country Family Fun

Memorial Day Weekend Guide

More and More Businesses are opening and farmers markets are starting, with safety mitigation of course!

The Memorial Day weekend is upon us. However, it won’t likely be the 3 day holiday weekend, kick-off to summer, of past years. True, weather permitting, you could find yourself out on the lake one or more of the days this weekend, but many beaches and pools and the Hartland Splash Pad are not open at this time. Despite this, there is still so much fun to be had with your family! Lake Country Family Fun has so many great ideas for what to do this holiday weekend to keep you entertained while physically distant. 

And it’s important to remember what the Waukesha Salvation Army wrote,

“As is said, “This coming weekend isn’t National Grill Out Day.” Indeed, it’s the national observance of Memorial Day, honoring the memory of all men and women who have sacrificed their lives in our nation’s wars and in military service…Do enjoy the day and the extended weekend, but also, please remember to say a prayer for those serving, for those who have served, and especially for the souls of those who have died serving. Thank you!”

Despite a forecasted chance for rain and thunderstorms, there is SO much to do this Memorial Day weekend as we edge closer to the unofficial start of summer. 

  • On Friday night, attend a local virtual concert such as Catelyn Picco’s Stand Strong concert. Blast the music to enjoy on your deck or patio!
  • Head to a drive-in movie theatre in Franklin. They are showing Disney’s Onward and Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw DETAILS.
  • Nearly all the WI State Parks are open. Take a hike in between the raindrops. 🌳❤️
  • Hike at a local Waukesha County Park.
  • More local farmers markets are opening on Saturday, including Oconomowoc. See which ones HERE.
  • Kona Ice is heading to local neighborhoods. Get the details HERE.
  • Schedule a tee time. See which golf courses are open HERE.
  • Organize your garage. If we are at home and the weather is bad, might as well get all the organizing done to make life easier.
    • While organizing, you may want to donate some items. Please be patient with the donation centers. They have been inundated in the past two weeks. 
  • Check out this zoo.
  • Plant a native tree/shrub or perennial flower.
      • Fleet Farm’s Garden Center is open and offering curbside pickup.
      • We have gardening tips here.
      • *Fleet Farm is a supporting of Lake Country Family Fun.
  • Shop a rummage sale.
  • Rent a kayak, canoe, or paddle boat this weekend from the City of Oconomowoc to use on Lac La Belle. Noon to 5:00 pm. Walk up to the Lifeguard post to reserve.

{All things May and Social Distancing friendly in Waukesha County} 

Despite the uncertainty of the world that continues, we at Lake Country Family Fun have been watching all the good happen. We found 10 creative ideas for community in the past few weeks.  On Friday, April 24, we partnered and delivered Chick-fil-A meals to staff at ProHealth Care in Waukesha, Pewaukee, and Oconomowoc. Plus, have you seen Lake Country Giving and Lake Country Strong? What wonderful services to our communities. Let us know what else you saw positive and heartwarming ❤️

Lastly, even with the positive, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides, social media posts and our e-newsletters, and I will continue to say it, because it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe. Please breathe with me (from your house or at least 6 feet away 😉 )

So, we want to see all your physical distancing weekend fun! Turn these lemons into lemonade🍋 Be sure to tag @lakecountryfamilyfun in your weekend fun, your activities, your survival strategies, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories. Thank you to those who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰
