Another June weekend is arriving and knocking on the door. What to do? More and more businesses and outside venues and nature areas are opening, including the Milwaukee Zoo and pools, with safety mitigation of course, for you and your family to have fun things to do. The Lake Country Family Fun weekend guide is filled with weekend things to do for you and your family this chilly weekend in June.
See below. ⤵️


What to expect this weekend – lots of sun and chillier temps (60-70s). There are many more ways to have family fun this weekend.  Lake Country Family Fun has so many great ideas for what to do this weekend to keep you entertained while physically distant. Try one of these ideas from our weekend guide:

  • Kick off the weekend with Food Truck Fridays at the Waukesha airport.
      •  Truckmeister & Lumpia
  • On Friday night, attend a local virtual concert such as Catelyn Picco’s Stand Strong concert. Blast the music to enjoy on your deck or patio!

{All things June and Social Distancing friendly in Waukesha County} 

Despite the uncertainty of the world that continues, we at Lake Country Family Fun have been watching, listening, and making sure that we are addressing our role in our communities. This past week has seen more local protests for the Black Lives Matter movement in our area. Local Black mother, Ashley, from Waukesha has been sharing so many ideas and resources with us via Instagram stories regarding raising socially conscious children. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, Ashley! We are listening and learning. Additionally, Shweta has written this article on acceptance

We are actively doing our part to make Lake Country Family Fun and the communities we live in, healthy and safe for Black families and all families. If you’d like to contact us to share your story or be involved in Lake Country Family Fun, please contact us through the contact form below. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊

Lastly, as always, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides, social media posts and our e-newsletters, and I will continue to say it, because it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe. Please breathe with me (from your house or at least 6 feet away 😉 )

So, we want to see all your physical distancing weekend fun! Turn these lemons into lemonade🍋 Be sure to tag @lakecountryfamilyfun in your weekend fun, your activities, your survival strategies, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories. Thank you to those who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰
