Washington Island celebrates winter

Washington Island gets an extra dose of seasonal enjoyment beginning this weekend. Celebrating Winter and Fish Derby is a weeklong celebration sponsored by the Washington Island Chamber of Commerce. In addition to a surprise event, food, and music, the Washington Island Lions Club sponsors a fishing competition and the Island Players put on a pair of performances. Bill Jorgenson from the Washington Island Lions Club says the derby has been going on for over 40 years.

Washington Island’s Celebrating Winter and Fish Derby event runs from February 9th through the 17th. You can learn more about how you can participate online by clicking here.
