In true pandemic summer fashion, it is another quiet weekend as far as organized events for families are concerned. We decided that we’d share some favorite outdoor adventure ideas and fun surprise ideas perfect for a gorgeous late summer weekend.
A friendly reminder as coronavirus continues to be present in our communities: please stay home if you aren’t feeling well, practice safe social distancing, and wear a mask when you are not able to maintain a 6-foot distance. Starting August 1, 2020, masks will be required by law when in enclosed spaces which include park structures and outdoor dining across Wisconsin for all citizens 5 and older.
