Eds Note: I have been a little behind in my postings here on the Wausaublog, but things should now be coming back to life a bit. And Wausau itself, though it does not hibernate during the winter, is also coming into the busy season of the year. Christine is going to get the ball rolling for us.
It is Bill’s favorite time of year- the time when Camp Wausau (is that trademarked, Bill?) is set to begin! There is a great line up of events for the warm summer months in Central Wisconsin. You can keep track of all the fun at www.visitwausau.com.
I noticed while entering some events in an on line calendar (www.explorehwy51.com) that the weekend after 4th Of July is really big this year. Beginning Wednesday, July 4th and running through the weekend, is the Jaycees’ 4th Of July Festival. The same weekend (July 6 – 8) is Chalkfest, The Hot Air Balloon Rally and couple of other smaller events!
The 2nd Annual Blueberry Blitz at Utech’s Rainbow Dairy Goat Farm is set for Saturday, July 21. There are blueberry treats, hay rides, a Blueberry picking contest, llama cart rides, llama walks and labyrinth walks (I am not sure if you can take the llama into the labyrinth…) You can even catch a tour of this working 400 goat farm.
And this me, Bill again. Things are in fact happening all over the place. This weekend featured a whitewater event downtown, the Farmers’ Market is open every Wednesday and Saturday until fall and signups for summer activities are well under way. So get out and enjoy Camp Wausau — and then read about it here.
