Weekend Guide, August 10-12

This weekend guide is a sponsored post.

Your Weekend Guide has Arrived!

They don’t call August the “dog days” of summer for no reason! With last weekend’s steamy temps, this weekend looks to be a bit less intense, but still summer hot in the 80s. So, be sure to check out the local ice cream spots, poolsbeacheslakes, and the Hartland Splash Pad. Find more summer fun at lakecountryfamilyfun.com/summer! **Just note that if you are headed to City Beach in Oconomowoc early Saturday morning, the Lake Country Triathlon will be going on starting at 7:00 am.

And did you know that back in our Families of Lake Country Family Fun series, one of the families mentioned that they used our site to help them pick where to live?! (Blushing!) So, if you are in the search for a new home, please know that the 2018 MBA Parade of Homes starts on Saturday, August 11, and Victory Homes (one of our sponsors, who helps keep the lights on over here) will be debuting their new Hawthorne model! See their Facebook for more details.

Plus, do you want to wish on a star? Only if you stay up to 2 am or after 😉 The Perseid Meteor Shower should be visible this weekend, of course when I’ll be sleeping, but if you are more of a night owl than me, head to the “country” part of Lake Country and take a gander!

ICYMI: We have a Road Trip Guide for you, brought to you by Kwik Trip. Plus, we are also giving away a $100 gift card to Kwik Trip. Did you enter yet? Enter here.
