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:
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.
