The weekend is back! And we are having mixed feelings, because we are hosting our last Lake Country Currents event. These have been an amazing way to network and meet creative, inspiring people that live and work right here in Waukesha County. If you were unable to sign up for an event this spring, don’t worry, we have more planned for 2019! Stay tuned!  

There’s a little bit of something for everyone going on this weekend! Lots of Star Wars events, Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, the Elephant exhibit opening up at the MIlwaukee County Zoo, and local farmer markets starting up…Find all the details below and in our GUIDE TO MAY 🐎🌮💫

And the weather looks to be amazing compared with this past week – no rain 🙂 Head outdoors with your family and make those memories! May is here! Many Farmers Markets are starting this weekend and what a way to welcome in the first weekend of May, than with sunny skies.  

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.
