10 Fun Things to Do This Weekend in Northwest Indiana July 28 – July 30, 2017
By: Jessica Campbell Last Updated: July 26, 2017

End the month of July with some last-summer events. Be weird with the City of Whiting at the annual Pierogi Fest and then switch over to Hammond to learn the polka! There’s food tasting, music, and old cars. Sand sculptures and beach parties, and a night time bike ride. Whatever the event, whatever the activity, don’t forget to enjoy the weekend. As summer comes to an end, look back at the great events and fun activities. Soak up the sunshine and local tunes, and have a great time!
