What gorgeous beautiful fall weather we had this week. Now to prepare for rain, frost, and potential flurries in the weekend. Are you ready for it? I’m not, but looks like I don’t have a choice 😉

If this weekend had a theme, it would be ‘Come visit the fire department’. There are 5 events, located in Hartland, Oconomowoc, Dousman, Mukwonago, and Ashippun. It’s no wonder since Fire Prevention week is October 6 through 12. Will you be supporting your local fire department this weekend? 

Not only is it Fire Prevention Week, but this weekend really kicks off trick or treat and Halloween events, which will dominate the next two weekends. Do you have your costumes picked out?  

Did you know we have a FALL PAGE dedicated to All.Things.Fall? There are quite a few fall festivals this weekend, so don’t miss out!

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.
