March 23-27 is Spring Break for Logansport, Caston, Pioneer and Southeastern Schools. If you’re not headed to warmer climates for the week, here are some local activities to enjoy!
MEET YOUR INNER ARTIST
Teri Partridge will host daily Spring Break art classes for kids featuring a different theme each day. From dinosaurs and dragons to princesses and castles, there’s something for everyone!
MONSTERS & RABBITS AND MORE
The Logansport Library has several special activities scheduled for families to enjoy during Spring Break week.
MAKE A COLLEGE VISIT
We know, we know. It’s supposed to be a break from school. But you can check out two local colleges without even leaving town. If you’ve never visited Logansport’s Ivy Tech campus along the Hoosier Heartland, this would be a great opportunity. Or, check in with Trine University at their new campus in the former Salin Bank building in downtown Logansport! If you’ve got the urge to travel, Purdue University in West Lafayette and Indiana University-Kokomo are within a short drive. You can schedule a visit through the Office of Admissions, or just drop in and explore the campus on your own.
EXPLORE THE PAST
Three floors of local history await at the Cass County Historical Museum, housed in the Jerolaman-Long Home at 10th and Market. Paintings by local artists, vintage toys, military uniforms and equipment and Native American artifacts are among the items in the museum. Check out the neighborhood grocery, an early kitchen, school and medical displays, too. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 1-5 p.m. Visit casshistory.com
for more info.
TAKE A HIKE
If you’ve never explored the local trail system, now’s your chance. Take the River Bluff Trail, from the confluence of the rivers at west end of Melbourne Avenue, east to 12th Street. The Eel River Run trail connects via Fourth Street, then heads east along High Street and Race Street to Riverside Park. Cross the new Cole Bridge at the northeast end of Riverside Park and take the River Bluff Trail. Head north and explore Hervey Preserve (entrance from the River Bluff Trail or off Michigan Avenue) and the Labyrinth. Take a lap around the trails at Logansport’s newest park – Huston Park, off of Smith Street. West of Logansport, near France Park, you can catch the Panhandle Pathway and take it to Royal Center, then, all the way to Winamac.
SEE A FREE MOVIE
A couple of local businesses and organizations are offering the chance for families to enjoy a free movie during Spring Break! See the schedule here.
SPRING BREAK CAMP
If you have to work while the kids are out of school, the Cass County Family YMCA offers a five-day Spring Break camp
that includes swimming, movies, games and more. There’s daily and weekly pricing and it’s open to Y members and non-members.
FREE ALL-AGES CONCERT
Wrap up your week with some live music as the State Theatre in downtown Logansport presents a free event for all ages. Jason McKeever, Dumbshucks, MudHippies and Bo Jackson 5 will perform. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. (Beer & Wine will be available for the 21+ crowd).
The final weekend of Spring Break is the weekend before Easter, so there are plenty of holiday activities! Visit CassCountyCalendar.com
