Marinette to Host 7th Annual Logging, Heritage Fest July 7-9

Issue Date: July 5, 2017

Awesome things are in store for the seventh annual Marinette Logging & Heritage Festival to be held July 7, 8 and 9 this year.

To start everything off, again this year, are the Menominee Nation Dancers and a traditional Fish Boil, sponsored by the Marinette Moose Lodge, to be held from 3 to 7 pm at Red Arrow Park. The Menominee Nation tribe tracks its roots to the mouth of the Menominee River, where the City of Marinette now sits. The Menominee Nation is the only present-day tribe in Wisconsin whose original story states that they have always been native to the state. If additional parking is needed for Red Arrow Park, there will be free parking at Harbor Town Marine, 203 E. Russell St., with a shuttle-bus available.

Starting at approximately 9 pm, the free Family Movie on the Island will be "The Lego Batman" Movie. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for this popular family event. New this year, will be a children's bicycle raffled off to a lucky child, compliments of Riverside Auto. Refreshments will be available.

Events on July 8th open with the seventh annual Ella Smetana Memorial 5K run/Walk at the Marinette Welcome Center at 8 am. A Marine Corps "Call to Colors" ceremony will be held at 10 am at the flag pole area on festival grounds on Stephenson Island, and the Triple C Riders River Cities Charity ride starts at 11 am. It leaves Applejacks, 20 W. Hosmer St., and leads a parade of bikes through town. Festivities on Stephenson Island will be "open" all day beginning at 11 am on July 8. Offered will be entertainment, music, food and craft vendors from local organizations and businesses and a variety of events throughout the day. There will also be a large Informational tent with several organizations, Menominee Arts Council, Wisconsin Trappers Association, Habitat for Humanity, Cemetery Walk Group, UW-Marinette, and Wisconsin Bicycle Federation (Bike Rodeo) participating. Natural History Items will be displayed from 1 to 4 pm by T.O.A.D.

Live music "Senior Moments" will play Jazz, Bluegrass, Old Time Rock, and 40's 50's tunes on the east side of the Welcome Center at 1 pm as attendees make their way to Stephenson Island on the foot bridge across the river.
