With these sub zero temps, who can blame us for wanting to find something good about winter? It doesn’t have to keep us inside and miserable with the cat that has allergies (just saying). It can be exciting and fun. These events are just a few (but really stellar) that you should escape to. Just wait and see.
Racine’s Big Chill Pro Jan. 9th-1/11
This is Wisconsin’s 25th year in being the People’s Choice competition for snow sculpting. Winner goes to the U.S. world championship! Enjoy family fun friendly activities and snowboarding to the Big Chill in downtown Racine. Enjoy the Rail Jam!! Thousands of visitors each year, make this one of the most successful winter events in Wisconsin.
St. Germain’s Radar Race Jan. 30- Jan. 31
Between fun runs and speed runs, shootouts and fly racing ice drags, this is the crowd with a need for speed, and perhaps, beautiful women and beer. The radar run highlights some of the fastest and most groomed tracks in the Midwest. Watch the demo rides, the Bikini race and drink a beer in the Sprecher beer tent if observing is more your thing. It’s hard to really explain, so watch the video here!
Phillip’s Winter Fest Jan. 24th-Jan. 25th
Phillips comes alive during Winter Fest with snowmobile races, parades, lawn more races (yes, that’s what we said, lawn mower races), face painting, ice fishing, snowshoeing and fireworks. Any of those strike your fancy? Maybe Tug of War will peak your interest, that can only be real fun in the winter when you knock the other team off balance. As if it isn’t weird already, they even have a keg toss competition. Check out the event at: EventCrazy.
Drummond’s Bar Stool Races Feb. 14th
This is a true “Up North” experience you should tell all your southern friends about. Nothing says I love you like spending Valentine’s day racing bar stools down a snowy hill but hey, is it ever fun?? Rules are pretty simple, there is beer at the end and cash prizes. We’re sold! Don’t quite get it? There is a video on their website!
