Winter’s in Door County are often laid back. There is still plenty of fun to be had but everyone is moving at a slower pace. Every once in a while there comes a weekend so full of fun and activities it’s hard to sit still. This is one of those weekends! The Fish Creek Winter Festival!
The Winter Festival has something for everyone. I mean EVERYONE. There will be activities beginning Friday the 31st culminating with Rock & Roll Art Night at Hands On Art Studio from 6:30 pm to 10 pm. Or head to the Door Community Auditorium for a screening of locally made film “Feed the Fish” at 7 pm.
The “winter games” begin at 10 am on Saturday. The games held outside range from: toilet seat toss, ice bowling, crazy golf, bike toss, hockey shot and wheel of meat, to name a few. Inside you can try your hand at bean bag, cannon shot, wheel of fortune and the ever popular minnow racing.
Aside from games there will be a parade Saturday morning at 10:30 am as well as a chili cook off. Don’t forget to stop by Hide Side between 10 am and 4 pm to see Chain Saw Carver Dave Bartels!
If you need to warm up head to the Peninsula School of Art for their SOUP! event from 11 am to 3 pm. They will have homemade soup & Bowls to purchase that help support the Peninsula School of Art’s Youth Outreach Program and the efforts of Door County Habitat for Humanity.
