Spring Out to Sunset
Spring is here and Porter County Parks and Recreation is ready to celebrate. The Spring Out to Sunset Festival is set for May 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sunset Hill Farm County Park, 775 Meridian Road in Valparaiso. The event is all about fun, families, and active living. The theme of this year’s festival is “A Community on the Grow,” and the activities that are offered encourage trying new things and enjoying unique experiences – from theater, art and music to fitness, kites and dogs. Some of the highlights that are planned for this year include a visit from a talented team of Frisbee dogs that have wowed crowds during NBA and NFL halftime shows, children’s workshops and performances by Chicago Street Theatre and Front Porch Music, a community mosaic organized by the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, and a stunt kite team.
