Fall Fest this weekend…

 

They call it the Grandaddy of all festivals Sister Bay’s Fall Fest. It is one of the oldest festivals in Door County.  They have a great parade, food, drinks and lots of music, including everyone’s favorite The Happy Schnapps Combo.  It’s a blast but you better love a crowd… in my mind that’s what makes it fun… people!  New this year will be the Sister Bay themed hat contest… one can only imagine.  Can you say goats on the roof?

Here what’s happening…

Bo is an amazing writer at just 12 years old and his candid perspective on his predicament will have you praying and cheering for him.  Go Bo!
