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: 

POSITIVELY PEWAUKEE Presenting the TASTE OF LAKE COUNTRY coming this month!

Taste of lake country Pewaukee Wisconsin 

 

What a heat wave! It’s going to be in the 90s over the weekend. If you find yourself at the Waukesha County Fair – know that they have a misting tent and two air conditioned buildings. And if you need to cool off, head to our SUMMER PAGE for ice cream spots, our beaches guide, our pool guide, and our lakes guide!

Besides the Waukesha County Fair, there are lots of other fun events going on yet this month. Have you checked out our 21 MUST DO JULY EVENTS GUIDE, yet? Find the details on Balloons over Mukwonago, which is THIS WEEKEND and HARTLAND KIDS DAY – less than 2 weeks away!!

One more note about that SUMMER PAGE I mentioned above – not only will you find ways to cool off, but ways to enjoy these warm summer nights, such as OUTDOOR MOVIES! There are 2 (now 1) outdoor movies this Friday! (The Muskego Movie has been rescheduled to next week (7/25) due to high heat.)

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.
