What to Do this Weekend in The Bend (Aug. 14-16)

Sometimes weekend plans are easy to come by. Other times, not so much. Are you wondering what to do the next few days? We have some ideas.   

Movie Night at Four Winds Field

There’s no baseball in The Bend this year, but the South Bend Cubs are still coming up with reasons to visit the ballpark. Four Winds Field is hosting movie night Friday, showing “The Sandlot” on the big screen. Tickets are $10 and there’s a fireworks show planned for after the movie.

Bust Out the Bicycle

We may not want to admit it, but beautiful riding days are going to be fewer are farther between soon. So, we best take advantage of summer weather while we can. The Bend has miles and miles of paths and trails, whether you’re looking for a stout challenge or a leisurely ride. Take the Indiana Michigan River Valley Trail between Niles, Mich., South Bend and downtown Mishawaka for some of the best rides available.
