THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND WITH KIDS!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Speechworks Oconomowoc Speech Language Therapist Development Lake Country Family Fun

SPEECHWORKS offers speech and language evaluations and therapy to families in the Lake Country area.  We can help you determine if your child’s speech-language milestones are developing as they should, if your child would benefit from speech services even if they didn’t qualify for school services, and if you should be concerned about the way your child is or isn’t saying a particular sound.Speech-language screenings and community presentations are also available to daycare and pre-school centers looking to provide additional resources for families.
 
Jann Fujimoto, MS CCC-SLP, is a certified speech-language pathologist and the owner of SpeechWorks LLC.

 

We are coming off an amazing week as we hosted the 7th annual Hartland Kids Day! WOW! Seriously, an amazing day, and I’m at a loss of words to describe it. The weather was perfect, the performances were on point, the 95 booths were so creative and fun…the community that came out and smiled and laughed and played…It melts my heart! We shared a lot of the day to our Instagram Stories and thank you to everyone who tagged us on Facebook as well! We’ll be sharing a recap of the event soon on the site!

Looking forward, it looks like the sunny weather is going to continue with only a slight chance for a storm on Saturday, which is awesome, because there is going to be so much fun going on this weekend! Head to our SUMMER PAGE for ice cream spots, our beaches guide, our pool guide, and our lakes guide!

Have you checked out our 10 Best August Festivals Guide, yet?  Find the details on Fiesta Waukesha and the WI State Fair, going on this weekend!! 

Lastly, Lake Country Family Fun did our research, like we do, and found all the {other} fun things for you and your family to do this weekend, too.
