This may come as a shock to you, but I like to have fun! What? That didn’t shock you? Lucky for me and for you that summer is here and we live in an awesome community to have fun! From someone who enjoys being outside or being at a baseball game, O’Fallon has my summer booked. Just to make sure you are having lots of fun this summer, here are some great opportunities to take advantage.
Did you know that less than 10% of kids today report playing outside regularly while 40% of their parents played outside frequently when they were young? (And they don’t even get to chase the DEET truck anymore.) What a shame; however, with all of the activities available in O’Fallon, I think we can put a dent in that number. Have you been to Brendan’s Playground yet in Westhoff Park? I took “Destructo-Boy” grandson to the splash pad last week and had a blast!
When was the last time you went to a Rascals game? Tickets are only $8 and include a ton of fun between the innings. Baseball not your style? Grab some friends to head over to the free Jammin’ in O’Fallon concerts held EVERY Tuesday night at Civic Park. Spend the day “Out Fishin’” at Lake Whetsel in Ft. Zumwalt Park or splash around at Alligator Creek Aquatic Center.
The point of my O’Fallon rundown is that there is plenty to do and enjoy outside of your house. O’Fallon is continually ranked as one of the Best Places to Live in America, so get out and take advantage of all that our community has to offer.
If you are looking to have early morning fun, we are still in need of volunteers for the Firecracker Run. If you are interested in spending a couple of hours at an awesome event call the Chamber office, 636-240-1818 or visit FirecrackerRun.net to learn more about the volunteer opportunities available.
Have a fun Summer!
