With the start of February – there is a whole slew of things to do this weekend February 3-5.
This weekend is the Super Bowl and by golly, Lake County is the place to be to watch the Falcons hopefully defeat the Patriots (sorry Brady fans).
February also brings Black History Month, the Academy Awards, the Grammy Awards, the Emmys, Valentine’s Day, Groundhog Day and of course – everyone’s favorite two days: National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day (Feb 11) and National Plum Pudding Day (Feb 12).
Let’s take a good look at all the fun things to do this weekend February 3-5
