Exciting Events and Activities To Do In Pulaski County This Summer

Pulaski County Indiana is full of outdoor and indoor attractions. Throughout the summer, the county’s special events make a visit essential. July brings the Northern Indiana Power from the Past and Bo Duke, who is played by John Schneider, will visit the Shadyhill Speedway in early August.

Shadyhill Speedway is a dirt racing oval in Pulaski County. It has events throughout the summer. They run weekly classes for UMP Modified, Pro Late Model, Bomber, and 4-Bangers. They also have a Lucky 7 Stock Car class seven times a year. Their weekly events often take place on Saturdays.

Children are allowed in the pits, but only with a parental consent form. This is a unique experience that cannot be found in other counties. Specific practice days are spread throughout the summer and a pit pass is only five dollars.

While events take place throughout the summer, August 6th is the day the Bo Duke, of Dukes of Hazzard, will make a guest appearance.

If you are interested in the outdoors, Rising Sun Campground is a family-owned business with various facilities for outdoor activities. The campground is equipped with spaces for RVs and tents. Rates depend on holiday stays, the size of a party, and whether a party will be staying in a tent or an RV.

Day passes are also an option and allow visitors to experience many of the options available at Rising Sun Campground. Guests can kayak, canoe, and tube.

The campground also hosts various events, such as their 4th of July weekend event from Friday the 1st to Monday the 4th. There will be a water war game, a golf cart parade, a slip-n-slide, and games of poker and bingo. Later in July is their annual BBQ cook-off and their first Adult Prom, an event limited to adults but with an all-inclusive event in the afternoon.

For an entirely different outdoor experience, Fort Knox Paintball has 14 different maps to play. Bookings are available for different types of groups including church groups, bachelor parties, and birthday parties.

Fort Knox Paintball also hosts different games. Their upcoming game is the Battle of Troy: Spartans v. Trojans from July 9th-10th. Pre-registration is open now at lower rates than game-day registration.

Fort Knox Paintball was awarded the best paintball venue in Indiana in 2021. This award was given for its three-story viewing deck, its various fields, and its reasonable pricing.

For those more interested in indoor activities, Main Street Bakery has donuts, cupcakes, cookies, cakes, and pies. These cupcakes are decorated with cartoon characters like the Cookie Monster or decorated simply with sweets to reflect the flavor of the cupcake.
