Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.
One of my favorite movies of all time growing up was Honey I Shrunk the Kids. I bet I watched it 100 times, as kids tend to do with their favorite movies! I am so excited because this movie, a classic in my household, is being featured this Friday, July 25 during the Art in the Park - Final Friday Movie Nights at Columbian Park. Also, Tippecanoe Arts Federation will be hosting an Instrument Petting Zoo which will allow kids to experiment with the diverse array of instruments! Also, take advantage while you are at the park to enjoy all the outdoor playground equipment. Another wonderful memory I had growing up is going to the park and swinging. It is such a simple thing, but I remember the wind in my hair and laughter all around.
This weekend marks the last days of the Tippecanoe County Fair! Head to the fair Friday and Saturday to see all the hand made crafts, foods, artwork and more. Enjoy carnival rides but beware, you may want to take a ride before you eat the scrumptious fair food as the rides will make your stomach swirl! Best of all is the animals. Kids spend months if not years raising hogs, horses, cows, rabbits, dogs and more. The county fair allows visitors a chance to see their hard work and also be able to pet and meet animals we don't see on a normal basis.
