After a, dare I say “chilly” Monday, the heat is back for the weekend! Lots of mixed feelings on the high heat we had last Friday with the heat index. I think I was in the minority that LOVED it! O well 🙂 Summer is pretty short in WI, so 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!

There are LOTS of festivals this weekend! It’s the last weekend to check out our 21 MUST DO JULY EVENTS GUIDE.  Find the details on Taste of Lake Country, including Dayspring providing fun children’s activities prior to the big event; and Dousman Derby Days, including the WI State Frog Jumping Contest. Plus, we are less than a week out from HARTLAND KIDS DAY!!

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! One of last weekend’s movies was rescheduled to this Thursday due to the 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.
