Wisconsin Weekend: Hot Times in the Mild Temps!
It’s the middle of January, and there’s a LOT to do and explore for your Wisconsin weekend. Here are some State Trunk Tour event picks as you explore this weekend:
Since 1964, Eagle River has hosted the Country Cat World Championship Snowmobile Derby; it’s the Indy 500 of the snowmobiling world. It’s one of the highest-ranking winter sports events in the Midwest and recognized around the world, attracting more than 40,000 spectators annually. Plenty of action takes place each day Thursday, January 18th through Sunday, January 21st, when the World Derby Championship starts at 3pm. Enjoy the action up close by the track or warm up in the Expo Hall, where you can shop for great stuff, imbibe on hot food and cold beer, or watch the action on TVs in the upstairs bar. Heated skyboxes are also available.
The Milwaukee Boat Show is Wisconsin’s largest, motoring through January 19-21 and 24-28, 2018 with over 300 boats from over 80 manufacturers. Motor yachts to 48 feet to aluminum fishing boats, ski boats, pontoons, runabouts & jet skis, plus dock systems & marine accessories.
It happens at the Wisconsin State Fair Park Exposition Center at the corner of Highways 59 & 181 (84th & Greenfield) in West Allis, just south of I-94 and U.S. 18 and east of I-41/I-894/U.S. 45 and Highway 100.
No problems this weekend with keeping the snow that’s there – melting ain’t gonna happen! The first of four Terrain Park events, the Rail Sessions takes place Saturday from 3-5pm on Wilmot Mountain. Check out – or participate in – competitions in skiing and snowboarding with two age categories. From Highway 83, follow Wilmot Road to get to this classic Wisconsin ski resort and watch this competition, ski, or go tubing. One of the ski runs even extends very slightly over the line into Illinois!
The 2018 Fire & Ice Festival is a family-friendly fun event with FREE ice skating, ice carving, specialty crafts, food trucks and cocoa, and more on Monument Square Saturday. It also kicks off Downtown Racine’s new Restaurant Week! Restaurant Week discount cards will get you 15% off your food at all of the participating locations all week long!
