10 Fun Things to Do This Weekend in Northwest Indiana August 4 – 6, 2017

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!
