Celebrate Schererville Festival

Schererville Festival 2021 is set for June 9-13. You can get unlimited ride wristbands for the kids and let them ride all day. Enjoy entertainment, bingo, fest food and more.

Ahh … parents can breathe a sigh of relief now that the school year has come to a close. It’s likely been the most challenging of school years with e-learning, masks, social distancing, no field trips and more. Now it’s time to savor some days with the kiddos and make the most of the pleasant weather and sunshine.

There are plenty of outdoor attractions, activities and events in the Region to enjoy — and even some indoor fun to be had on rainy days. Get out that calendar and start filling it up!

Pond Exploration Day

JUNE 9, 9:30-11 a.m. Lemon Lake County Park, 6322 W. 133rd Ave., Crown Point. 219.844.3188. lakecountyparks.com. This program is for ages 3 and older and will introduce them to things that live underwater in a pond besides fish. Wear shoes/clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Program is free, but there is a gate fee.

Schererville Festival 2021

Gary SouthShore RailCats

ONGOING. Gary SouthShore RailCats Steel Yard, One Stadium Plaza, Gary. 219.882.2255. railcatsbaseball.com. What defines summer more than a baseball game?

Check out the promotional schedule for discounts and special offers.

Hobart Summer Market on the Lake

ONGOING, 4-9 p.m. Thursdays. Festival Park, 111. E. Old Ridge Road, Hobart.

Toddler Time at SkyZone

ONGOING, 10-11 a.m., Fridays. SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park, 1035 Eagle Ridge Drive, Schererville. Keep this one in your back pocket for when the weather isn’t cooperating, but you need to get the kids out of the house and wear them out for nap time. This time slot is for ages 6 and younger only.

Canoe Rentals at Wolf Lake

ONGOING, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily starting June 7. Wolf Lake Aquatic Center/Splash Pad, 2100 Calumet Ave., Hammond. 219.655.5212. hammondportauthority.com.
