Weekend Planner: Concerts, Cougars and Mark Twain

Summer is drawing to an end, at least unofficially. But there's still plenty of events to make the most of the weekend with your family. Here are a few highlights from the Go West Calendar:

If you want to catch a Kane County Cougars game this summer, you need to act fast! Photo by ricklibrarian on Flickr.ST. CHARLES: The final concert in the St. Charles Concerts in the Park series is Thursday night, with The Crown Vics performing 1950s rock 'n' roll at 7 p.m. in Lincoln Park. In the event of rain, the show is moved to the Arcada Theatre, just a few blocks away. 

GENEVA: Time is running out to go to a Kane County Cougars game. The Cougars have just a couple homestands left before their season ends. They'll be taking on the Clinton Lumberkings on Thursday and Friday nights at 6:30 p.m., with fireworks scheduled after both games. The Cougars won't be back at Elfstrom Stadium until Aug. 25, playing at home through Aug. 28 and then again Sept. 1 through Sept. 3.

ELGIN: Has your child always wanted to crack open a geode? (I know I did when I was a kid!) Then you'll want to check out the "Geodes and Gems" program on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Elgin Public Museum. This is a free, drop-in program.

NAPERVILLE: It's "Rolling on the River Weekend" at Naper Settlement, inspired by the characters of Mark Twain. Your kids can build a model raft, whitewash a fence and participate in activities to learn more about Twain's America on both Saturday and Sunday. Activities are included with admission.

WHEATON: Cantigny has a couple more outdoor musical concerts scheduled before summer officially ends. On Sunday, the Roots Rock Society will be performing Caribbean/reggae music at 3 p.m. at the bandshell. The concert is included with the regular $5 parking fee.
