The Harbor Island International Beer Fest could almost double as a UN summit. Nearly 150 breweries plan to attend the event, representing nations such as Belgium, Germany, England, Czechoslovakia, and Italy. Throughout the afternoon, festivalgoers get the opportunity to try samples?including exclusive beers made just for the event?from renowned breweries like Dogfish Head, Founders Brewing Company, and Unibroue. With the Long Island Sound as a backdrop, visitors can stop to raise the occasional toast as they explore the grounds and receive samples from the flowing taps.

The five-hour celebration won't be limited to tastings, though. Live bands will perform for the crowds and the event schedule includes seminars and presentations on professional brewing techniques. At a separate marketplace area, visitors can check out home-brewing equipment and watch demos, though none this year cover the fine art of drinking beer from a beer helmet. And when it comes to feeding the crowds, local and regional restaurants also bring their A-game with everything from barbecue to chocolate truffles.

Bounce! Trampoline Sports proves that learning to dunk a basketball is not a matter of practice and persistence, but of location. On the slam-dunk court, preteens can achieve the same amount of air time as pro stars, dropping the ball into the net before landing safely on the springy floor.

These antigravity zones allow for freeform flips and bounds as well as games and activities. Dodge-ball teams lob soft spheres at each other in midjump, and low-impact aerobics classes condition students through energizing leaps. The center also caters to skateboarders and snowboarders, who can rehearse their tricks without worrying about hard falls or the harsh critiques of nearby snowmen. During open bounce time, the gym welcomes guests of all ages to test its cushy amenities, all of which are supervised by staff and protected by various safety measures. Group events range from birthday parties to corporate gatherings.

The Dirty Dash isn't the kind of race where runners try to set a new record. There are no ribbons or trophies for the first runner across the finish line either. That's because the real fun of this race isn't in winning, it's in the actual running itself. And watching groups of costumed adults play in the mud, of course.

Part light-hearted race, part military-style obstacle course, The Dirty Dash challenges runners with a course strewn with muddy obstacles with a focus on fun. In order to reach the finish, runners will have to hop over hay bales in mud pits, navigate rows and rows of tires set in wet soil, and even launch themselves down a foamy, 175-foot slip-n-slide. Besides the ultimate reward?the opportunity to spend a day in the mud?each participant also gets a t-shirt, pig tattoo, bandana, and pig decal, as well as a perfect excuse to visit their favorite dry cleaner.

With its main lodge built during the era of the Founding Fathers, Orvis Sandanona serves as one of the oldest permitted shotgun-shooting clubs in the country. Given its history, it's no surprise that the diverse 20-stand sporting-clays course has been chosen to host many prestigious competitions. Lush greenery and wooden fences also extend to both the modern skeet and five-stand courses, where onsite specialists teach the English Churchill method of shotgun hunting. In addition, fly fishing instruction comes in handy during guided fishing trips arranged by the staff. The clubhouse's dining room?whose ceiling beams and wooden accents give it the vibe of a colonial tavern?serves as a cozy spot for lunch or dinner.
