Wisconsin Rapids Cranberry Blossom Festival; June 18-21, 2015

Wisconsin Rapids is no exception to this rule with enough events to keep anyone more than busy and entertained.

Listed below are a few of the great activities that you may enjoy, and while you are there, grab a big bag of Cranberries for me.

Thanks,

Bob

A list of lots of fun and interesting activities, Bob. Never heard of any traditions/festivals around cranberries--wish I were closer to get a first-hand look.

Bob Crane We love cranberries, so obviously are upset this Cranberry Festival is too far removed from us to allow us to attend. Looks like a lot of family fun!
