Toilet seats, chili, raffles, a wheel of meat and human foosball are just a few things Fish Creek’s 26th Annual Winter Fest had to offer Saturday. Did I mention ice bowling?
First-time Fish Creek visitor Dan Sims rolled three frames and fared pretty well.
The Chicagoland native who now resides in Green Bay didn’t know about the festival when he came up to spend the weekend with friends in Fish Creek, but he’s glad they stumbled upon it.
This year was also the first year that Marketing Coordinator for the Fish Creek Civic Association Erin Sutton has been a part of the Winter Festival.
A heated tent offered festival goers a chance to warm up, eat some chili and play games run by local nonprofits. All of the money raised from the games goes directly to the nonprofit running each game/activity. President of the Fish Creek Civic Association Bob Spielman says collectively the groups raise about $8,000-$12,000 every year.
The Festival wraps up Sunday with the 4th Annual Fruit Loop at 10:30. Runners wear costumes on the half-mile loop through town and then sit down for an Olympic-style awards ceremony and a breakfast of…you guessed it, Fruit Loops.
