Lincoln Kermis draws huge crowd 

The fourth Sunday in August has special meaning for generations of farmers and residents in northwest Kewaunee County.  Benefiting from nice weather this year a record 589 people showed up this past Sunday for the outdoor mass at St. Hubert Church in Lincoln for the annual kermis.   Co-organizer Todd Thayse shares how important the tradition is to the locals.



The Lincoln Kermis has been coordinated by the St. Peter & St. Hubert Parishes in Rosiere and Lincoln as part of their church picnics since 1997.  The polka mass began the festivities at 10:15 Sunday morning after a brief concert.  Thayse adds that the Lincoln Kermis offered entertainment all afternoon and concluded about 5 pm.
