Southeast Wisconsin Pumpkin Farms Pumpkin Farm Guide

Weekend Guide, October 2-4

Who is looking for things to do this first weekend of October? Are you wondering what things there are to do on the weekend for your family? Lake Country Family Fun has done the research so you don’t have to! We love seeing families outdoors in the fresh air where we can enjoy these natural resources and still be socially distant from our neighbors. So, if you’re looking for outdoor family fun weekend things to do – you’re in the right spot with the Lake Country Family Fun Weekend Guide! {We have indoor fun to share with you as well.} See below. ⤵️


What to expect this weekend – chilly, chilly weather – grab your parka and get outside as the highs are looking to be in the 50s. AND there’s a chance for showers as well. Now let’s just hope the forecasted scattered sprinkles don’t ruin any outdoor fun. If you are looking to go apple picking, corn maze finding, or hiking – you’ve found the best weekend for outdoor family fun! 😁🌞

Try these outdoor ideas this weekend🌞 :

  • Get lost in a corn maze!
        • A couple weekend’s ago we went to Schuster’s Farm and for real got lost. Well, for 10 minutes we found ourselves in a loop before we found the correct path out! Check out some of our pictures through the corn maze guide.

Lastly, as always, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides since SPRING, 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. 

So, we want to see all your 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 the many who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰
