Little Lake County Playground Tour 2015: Free Summer Fun Returns!

LTM Events

It was the summer of 2014 when Little Lake County rocked the playground.

Little Lake County Playground Tour

This summer, we’re packing up the minivan and hitting the road for an encore.  It’s the epic rerelease of the Little Lake County Playground Tour 2015!  For five dates this summer, we’ll visit a different, awesome Little Lake County playground and we’re calling all our fans to join us.

Little Lake County Playground Tour

This time around we’re bringing you a remix, with a classic favorite from last year and new playgrounds to explore.  It’s time once again to rock ‘n roll on the swings and party in the sandbox!

We’ve got some totally rockin’ friends who are coming out to jam with us.  It’s no fun playing solo.  Our series sponsor, Great Lakes Credit Union, will keep the party hopping with visits from Kirby the Kangaroo.  Kirby will be ready for pictures and hugs for all his pint-sized groupies.

Each park district will provide special programming like arts and crafts, games, and even live music–dude!  Our playdate co-sponsors will take it to the bridge with awesome activities like children’s theatre, science demos, and a miniature petting zoo to name just a few.

Finally, you’ll need fuel for the road, that’s why Surf Sweets Organic Gummy Candy will be handed out at each playdate (while supplies last.)  Moms and Dads of kids with food allergies can feel good knowing that Surf Sweets is free of the 10 most common food allergens.

So put these dates on your calendar and remember to RSVP when we open registration for each of these playdates.  To make sure you don’t miss any registration announcements, subscribe to our newsletter.
