This summer we’re showing off Fort Wayne in our Hot Summer. Cool City. series and finding all the great hot places to play and cool off.  Summer is packed with events in Fort Wayne—there is a festival every weekend, package deals to make your trip planning even easier, and Farmers Markets all over the city.  We’ve even got the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and TinCaps games at Parkview Field, the #1 and #2 Indiana Summer Gotta-Dos by this site.

Cool City. by entering our photo contest.  Here’s how it works: From now until the end of June, send in the best photos you have of Fort Wayne.  They can be of you, your family, or other things you love about Fort Wayne.  Enter on Facebook here.  You can also tweet or instagram your picture by using @VisitFortWayne and #hotsummercoolcity in your message.
