Fall has fallen and October is here! This weekend features a ton of great, family-friendly events for all ages, so be sure to see what's out there and take advantage of the beautiful weather while you have a chance.
October is here! Finish off September with these great events around Northwest Indiana! From fall fun fests to family get-togethers, there's something for everyone!
We're "rounding third" in September! While the weather is still nice out there, go to a concert, enjoy a farmer's market, see a show, and make sure you take advantage of some great events in Northwest Indiana!
We're havin' a heat wave! The weather may be in the 80's for the final time of 2017, so be sure to get out and take advantage of some great Northwest Indiana with some fun events taking place in the Region!
September is here and the time to be heading outside and enjoying some great fall weather is coming in strong! How do we know? Popcorn, Apple, and Fall Sports festivals are all in the air, along with some other great events taking place in Lake, Porter, and La Porte Counties.
Can you believe it is Labor Day Weekend already? Summer may be winding down, but that doesn't mean there isn't a whole slew of activities to do before the cold weather comes (and you know it will)!
Another great weekend of events! Walk, run, or bike during the Tour de La Porte, and then slow down the legs for an easy night ride on Saturday in Valpo! This is a great weekend to get some shopping during the Whiting Summer Stroll, Hammond’s Art Fest, and find some great sales at the Kabelin Ace Hardware Grill Fest! Of course, there are several opportunities to listen to some great music, and the highlight of weekend: drinking delicious craft beer while watching at the Michigan City Zoo animals!
And…. Summer is over. We had a great time, did you? Even though, our school bags are packed, you do not need to put those bathing suits away just yet! Enjoy some more summer events and head out to Hobart for the city’s annual Lakefront Festival! Enjoy some craft beer and delicious wine at the Michigan City and Highland beer fests, and don’t forget to take a bit of some great BBQ at Marram Health Center!
For more of an active weekend, there is a nightly bike ride and an inflatable obstacle course that trust me, you won’t want to miss! Then, relax with the arts. The Lubeznik Center is hosting their eye-opening, beautiful art festival and then you can take a sneak at the Chicago Street Theater’s 63rd season! What an amazing way to end the summer days! Have fun!
Let’s get ready to party! Wow, what a fun list of activities to join into this weekend. Either pick one and camp out at or jump around throughout the area to fit them all in! There is the Duneland Chamber Party in the Park, St. John’s Chamber Annual Corn Roast, and Hannafest! Spend the Saturday biking, then head to another live music show at the Prairie Magic Music Festival or the Valpo YMCA’s Battle of the Bands. Show off your car, watch some jet ski racers zoom across the Whiting beach front, or party for a great cause at the Salvation Army’s Block Party! These events are great ways to end the summer and kick-off the school year!
Another busy weekend is up ahead. Lets eat our hearts again at the Taste of Michigan City, and the Valpo Kiwanis Corn Roast, but don’t worry, with this weekend active schedule you will need the energy! Get a taste of what a triathlon feels like at the La Porte County Triathlon, or get down and dirty at the Hobart mud volleyball game. Drink a lot of coffee to stay up for the WHAM night bike ride in Hammond, and then walk miles and miles searching for tricky little leprechauns! It is important to stay active and healthy, and in Northwest Indiana we take that to heart. Combining great athletic activities, food, and weather, this weekend is one where you may not see your house too often!
End the month of July with some last-summer events. Be weird with the City of Whiting at the annual Pierogi Fest and then switch over to Hammond to learn the polka! There’s food tasting, music, and old cars. Sand sculptures and beach parties, and a night time bike ride. Whatever the event, whatever the activity, don’t forget to enjoy the weekend. As summer comes to an end, look back at the great events and fun activities. Soak up the sunshine and local tunes, and have a great time!
