New Haven

Hop on over to New Haven, by taking the Rivergreenway trail east just past Kreager Park! Grab a bite to eat and then enjoy the classic New Haven Canal Days (pictured above) in early June. And, if you’re looking to beat the summer heat, make a stop at Jury Pool for a dip, splash, or a slide into their impressive pool.


Leo-Cedarville offers outstanding outdoor recreation at the Hurshtown Reservoir (where you can rent a canoe or try your hand at fishing), Riverside Park (which features biking and walking trails and a new splashpad), and the Leo-Cedarville Imagination Station (a wooden playground that is every child’s delight)! Metea Park, one of the gems of Allen County, offers five miles of trails, woodlands, wetlands, swimming, fishing, a nature preserve and more.

While in the area, be sure to stop by The Olde Church Shoppes for antiques, Perk’s Peak for a caffeinated pick-me-up, the Leo Café and Old Towne Diner (try the Friday fish special). If you want to combine a kayak rental with a great lunch, look no further than Steady Eddy’s, offering boat rentals and a put-in, alongside delicious lunch options.

And don’t miss the Farmer’s Market on the Leo Downtown Plaza on Thursdays from 4-7, May through September.

The annual Arcola National Truck and Tractor Pull is Arcola, IN’s claim to fame and a can’t-miss event for anyone interested in agriculture, powerful engines, or just having a good time! This massive event takes 300 volunteers to pull off and is the main source of support for the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department. Winning two titles of the National Tractor Pullers Association’s Regional Pull of the Year award, the event is held every year in early summer at Branning Park.

Spectators enjoy fair food and raffles, but you may want to bring hearing protection as you watch the spectacle of massive truck and tractor engines pulling weight down a prepared clay track. Be ready to cheer “full pull!” with the rest of the crowd as only the strongest engines make it to the end of the track.
