Things to do this Weekend November 6-8

By: Jonathan Jones 11/03/2015

We all benefited this prior weekend. As the weather turns cool, one of the best things about autumn is falling back an hour. Everyone needs that extra hour of sleep.

From the bike trails to the Christmas decorations (seriously it gets earlier every year, to fall fests to outdoor activities, Lake County carries an abundance of things to do every weekend.

Also, we can all bask in the Packers first loss of the season (sorry Anthony).

Let’s see what we got in store for our things to do this weekend November 6-8.

  1. Music, shopping and good eats: What more can you ask for? Join Libertyville in celebrating their First Fridays. Pamper your taste buds with some fine cuisine and wine tasting, bob your head to the melodic and entrancing sounds of live jazz or walk around and search spoil yourself with a nice gift from the specialty shops on MainStreet. The party is in downtown Libertyville and everyone’s invited to this free event.
Friday, November 6; 6-9 p.m. Downtown Libertyville, Rt. 21, Libertyville.
  1. Halloween is kaput. Now what to do with those pumpkins? Vernon Hill Park District invites you to the Sled Hill at Century Park, along with your pumpkins and gourds, for an afternoon of destruction.
