Let’s enjoy another weekend in Champaign-Urbana, as love is in the air when it comes to this weekend’s activities
Families can choose from myriad events and activities this weekend in Champaign-Urbana
We are grateful for another week of mild temps around Champaign-Urbana so that we can enjoy a few of our favorite things from the warmer months right now in February. Want to go play at the park? We have mud and mulch free playgrounds that are great for warm days this time of year. How about a walk in the woods? Walking or biking paved trails at our Champaign County Forest Preserves are another favorite for unseasonably warm days. Get out and enjoy!
