Is there any better time to live in Wisconsin than in the summer? We think that our state has the makes of the perfect summer season – sun, fun and plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy. Here’s what’s happening this weekend:
AirVenture is back in Oshkosh! Each year, aircraft enthusiasts from all over the world come together for the world’s largest aviation celebration. For seven days, visitors have the chance to watch outstanding aerobatic displays, listen in on information-rich programs and participate in hands-on workshops. If you’ve never visited Oshkosh during AirVenture, it’s definitely an event worth adding to your bucket list. We were so thrilled to provide our UWSP intern tickets to Friday’s show and the day off to experience the spirit of flight. (We wanted to show her a day of fun in appreciation for all of her hard work!)
The 39th Annual Door County Antique Show, sponsored by the Sister Bay Lions Club, is also taking place this weekend. The three-day show starts today from 10 am to 6 pm in the Gibraltar High School gymnasium. Thirty-five exhibitors will be selling fine art, choice primitives, ornate Victorian pieces, jewelry, furniture and more. There will also be Crystal and China Repair on site. Admission is $5 and is good for all three days. Proceeds will benefit Leader Dogs for the Blind.
Hayward is once again hosting the Lumberjack World Championships over the weekend. The event began in 1960 as a way to recognize the country’s rich logging history. Today, the event showcases more than 21 unique competitions for both men and women. Activities include logrolling, chopping and pole climbs. All participants are competing for more than $50,000 in prize money.
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of great food, music and art in Pewaukee. Visitors will be able to sample the best the best of the area in all in one place. The celebration will be held on both Friday and Saturday.
How do you plan to spend Saturday and Sunday? Whether you plan to be out and about or just take some time to relax, all of us at Lions Pride wish you a good weekend!
