Wausau’s Big Weekend

July 11, 2009

Wausau’s Big Weekend is off and running, but it may be even bigger than you might think.

It is hard to miss the Balloon Rally which has been underway since Thursday, even if the mid-summer nights winds have held down the festivities just a little bit.  There was an abbreviated glow on the square last night with 2 balloons inflating and Balloon glowing on the 400 Block, and the balloons launched from the airport this morning.  And there is plenty more to come with another launch and glow this evening, fireworks, Pigs in the Sky ribfest and more.  You can check out the complete schedule at the Wausau Area Events website.

But wait, as they say, there’s more!

If you need something to do while you are waiting for the balloons to launch late this afternoon, head downtown.  On the 400 block Chalkfest is underway, public art at its best.  And a number of downtown merchants are having sidewalk sales.  Get everything you need, get inspired and meet new people.  Another great day downtown.

Now how much would you pay?  Don’t answer yet!  There’s more.  If athletics is more your thing, there is a recreational release for kayaks and canoes down at the Wausau Whitewater Park on Sunday.  You can get more information here.

If after all that you need some peace and quiet, the First Universalist Unitarian Church of Wausau has a weekend of teachings by nationally known Tibetan teacher.  More information on that can be found here.

Inside or outside there is more to do this weekend than you can shake a stick at — get out there and enjoy all that is Camp Wausau!
