Weekend Guide, February 1-3

THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH FESTIVE THINGS TO DO!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Ice Castles Lake Geneva Lake Country Family Fun
 
Ice Castles is an awe-inspiring, must-see winter phenomenon that brings fairy tales to life. The frozen attraction is located in six cities across North America. The experience is built entirely by hand using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by professional ice artists. The castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, and fountains.
 
Visit Ice Castles in Lake Geneva this winter!

Hello February!! (Please be warmer. Please be warmer. Please be warmer.)

Wow – January sure ended like a lion, isn’t that March that’s supposed to be a lamb or lion? This past week was some of the coldest weather I’ve ever experienced in my 30+ years in WI…definitely going out like a lion!

I hope you have all warmed up and aren’t too cabin feverish. After snowmageddon and the Polar Vortex, we are in for some rain possibly this weekend?! I cannot make this up. Fact is crazier than fiction sometimes. 

But we did our research, like we do, and found all the fun things for you to do this weekend. 

Plus, it’s Super Bowl weekend, Super Bowl LIII to be exact. Are you watching? Hosting a party? Any fun recipes? Just in it for the half-time show? Do you get excited about the commercials? We used to, but they usually leak them early online and creativity seems to be waning in the past couple years 😉 If you don’t even know what I’m talking about, the New England Patriots are playing the LA Rams for the Lombardi Trophy in Atlanta at 5:30 pm CST (where they are also experiencing lower than normal temperatures).
