The hits keep on coming here in Camp Wausau. We have another fun and activity filled week ahead of us and much of it is free for the taking.
If you have kids, you might want to head down to the downtown to the library today at 2 pm. Randy Peterson will be singing and playing for the kids. Randy is a Green Bay based singer who puts on a high energy show that is just right for younger kids, say first grade on down. This is part of the library’s summer reading program.
If you have graduated from first grade or even graduate school and are looking for a little more “grown up” music, come on out the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum tonight at 6 pm for a free concert by Frogwater with Lil’ Rev. The are a Milwaukee trio that lights up a stage with their hip blend of Celtic, bluegrass, and country. I have not heard them before, but it sounds very interesting indeed. Bring your blankets, chairs and a picnic dinner. If you are bringing something good, let me know so I can join you.
For even more “grown up” music come out to Marathon Park on Wednesday night for the Violent Femmes, the second in the Kinzie Benefit Concert Series. If you are looking for something a little more laid back on Wednesday night, you can head to the 400 Block for the weekly Concert on the Square for one of our locally favorite jazz bands, Altenburgh & Friends. Yet another bring your chairs and picnic kind of event.
On Thursday evening the Wausau City Band performs in Marathon Park at 7 for all you closet march fanatics out there. Once again, a picnic basket and folding chair is the order of the day.
And this weekend you can head down to Schofield for the Schofield Fires Department Fun Days. They will have food, a beer garden, bands playing, a parade at noon Saturday, a petting zoo, helicopter rides and all kinds of fun stuff.
That should be enough to wear you out this week, but if I have forgotten anything, you can drop a reminder in the comment box.
