Fair and festival season is officially underway in Wisconsin
The fair and festival season is officially underway in Wisconsin. All across the Badger state there is an event to appeal to everyone.
Feel like flying a kite or dancing a polka out in the street or checking out that hot rod from your teen years? Well, there's likely a festival for you.
And Wisconsinites know how to throw a good party with great music, cold drinks and plenty to eat from hot, pipping ears of corn slathered in butter to delectable cream puffs served at the Wisconsin State Fair.
Beginning with the Elroy Fair in June, there is a county or community fair scheduled for nearly every weekend during the summer, winding up with the Central Burnett County Fair in mid-September.
So get out your map, gas up the car and head on out this summer for some fun!
