  • River City Links
    The flowing waters of the Maumee River gird the northernmost fairways of River City Links' 18-hole putting course, inviting misaimed golf balls to plop alongside the aquatic artery?s cargo ships floating to Lake Erie. The waterway nestles alongside the course without cutting through it, enabling the course to maintain its straightforward layout. This, in turn, lets golfers focus on the fundamentals of their game without the distraction of elaborate hazards such as lava pits and ball-eating goats. After a relaxing day on the course, players can lounge on the clubhouse?s white wraparound deck and look out over the river, listening to the breeze that whispers through the weeping willows.

  • BBQ Rib Fest
    For more than 15 years, summer in Indiana has meant ribs in Headwaters Park. BBQ Ribfest typically draws more than 40,000 people, all of them hungry for a mix of ribs, pulled pork, and barbecued chicken. Barbecue teams from around the country cook the food in their trademark styles, then serve it fresh off the grill, dousing the meats with sauces that range from hot and spicy to sweet and tangy. The festival isn't all about food, though?blues and jazz musicians perform live throughout the weekend, and on Saturday morning, festival-goers can run the Ribfest 5k, a healthier alternative to hoisting ribs like dumbbells before eating them.

  • Glo Run Fort Wayne
    The Glo Run?s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn?t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.
