Weekend Picks for the Kalamazoo Parent -June 10-12

by Jill P

 

Summertime is here! Many kids are either just getting out of school today or have just a few days left next week. There are so many fun things to do this summer and we couldn’t be more excited for summer to begin!

Speaking of summer fun, did you see our Summer Bucket List that we published earlier this week? We have 75 things to do with your kids this summer. That’s one thing per day (as my 7 year old son recently pointed out). Enjoy this time with your family! (Plus, we’re running a giveaway on our KZOOkids Facebook page. You can WIN 4 tickets to Binder Park Zoo this summer).

  • The Kalamazoo Growlers season is under way and you can join the fun on June 11 with the Kalamazoo Growlers WWE Night. Plus, you’ll see post-game fireworks. How cool!
  • The Summer Kickoff on June 11 with the Portage District Library is always a fun event. Sign-up for their Summer Reading program and stay for some family-friendly fun. Activities include: face painting, crafts, all-ages activities, scavenger hunts and more. Free.
  • Family Fishing Clinic at Spring Valley Park on June 11. Join Grandpa Jim at this family-friendly event for a morning of fishing fun. There will be a limited amount of fishing poles on-site so participants are encouraged to bring their own if you have one. Free.
