Here’s what’s going on this weekend, July 24th-July 26, 2015!
On Friday night at Devil’s Lake State Park, you can join the naturalist for the Lawn Chair Bat Watch starting at 8:30pm. This is fun, family event. The kids love it and NO, the bats don’t get in your hair!! It’s a great time to bring a comfy lawn chair and watch the bats! You’ll park your chairs by the bat condo on Devil’s Lake’s north shore and watch the bats emerge from the houses. Check out some fun bat information and help your kids with bat scavenger hunt while they wait to the bats to emerge! Meet at the bat condo (near the north shore boat launch).
On Saturday, the city of Baraboo holds its annual circus parade in Downtown Baraboo starting at 2:00 pm, featuring wagons from Circus World’s collection and honoring Baraboo’s rich Circus Heritage.
