Today starts my interviews with Christine Schilling from Klondike Days. Every Wednesday she will be in about 3:30 to share information on Klondike Days in Eagle River. Christine will share a lot of inside on the event and maybe some secrets to.
If you have never been to Klondike Days you are missing it. This is my wife's favorite event of the year. Outside and inside it is full of fun. The event is a family-oriented event featuring a variety of turn-of-the-century activities, is planned for Eagle River Saturday and Sunday, Mar 3 and 4, 2012.
Highlights of the weekend long festival will be River Country Red's Rendezvous and Living History, North Woods Championship Dog Weight Pull, the one and two-horse Log Pull Classic, Hayward style lumberjack competition, a chain-saw carving competition, the Native American cultural exposition and a huge winter art and craft show.
The food they serve inside and out is fantastic. I know at some point I had to go there. They have elk burgers and various other meats. Chili, deserts, soda-pop, and an adult beverage of two.
It is also a weekend filled with all kinds of great music and inside the high School is a craft fair. If you want to visit their site go to www.klondikedays.org. It is worth planning a whole day with the family.
We will also be giving away tickets for you to go for free. just listen to WRJO.
The thing that I love the best about Klondike Days are the horse weight pulls....and the food!.
Did I mention that they serve up Paul Bunyan Brownies? They have a dozen different flavors, they are an inch thick and the size of a note card. I would suggest one right away in the morning for so energy to enjoy the outdoor activities. Lunch a bit later. Then one more to wrap up the day. Who needs 5 hour energy when there are P.B.B's????
Join us for this one. It is a dandy. I might even buy you a P.B.B. if you ask nicely.
