“GIBBY” THE WHITEFISH RESCUES FISH CREEK’S WINTER FESTIVAL TENT IN THE SHALLOWS OF HORSESHOE ISLAND.
THE TENT IS BACK FOR 2010!

Fish Creek’s 23rd annual Winter Festival brings the tent back for 2010.
The weekend of fun activities, February 5th, 6th and 7th, will be held in a large, outdoor, heated tent in Clark Park on the shores of the Fish Creek harbor.

“In order to preserve Winter Festival as the premiere winter event in Door County, we felt it was critical that we return the tent to Clark Park,” said Bonnie Spielman and Bonnie Smith, Civic Association board members. “The tent represents a gathering place with a sense of community for locals and visitors alike. It provides a festive atmosphere, with a little warmth outdoors in February.”

The tent will open Saturday the 6th at 10 AM with games, prizes, music, raffles food and drinks. “We are pairing local businesses with Door County non-profit organizations to sponsor games and activities to raise money for the community. Join in such traditions as the bike toss, ice bowling, minnow races, football toss, toilet seat toss, snowshoe dancing and more.

Help celebrate winter by joining in the fun of Fish Creek’s zany hometown parade at 10:30 AM on Main Street (Hwy. 42) and meet “Gibby” the whitefish, our festival mascot and hero….remember, he found our tent!

The annual soup fundraiser at Peninsula School of Art begins Saturday at 11 AM. Buy a bowl made by a local art student and enjoy homemade soup. Proceeds will benefit Feed My People.

At 3 PM on Saturday, the Annual Chili Cook-off will once again take place in the tent, with a spirited competition by proud chili cooks. The individual chili will be judged with the winner taking home a $250 prize and the kudos of the best chili in Door County. Enjoy sampling the chili and judging the People’s Choice Award.

For the 6th year in a row, internationally and nationally renowned kite fliers, makers and designers will fill the skies over Fish Creek with kites of all shapes and sizes for Kites Over the Bay. Fish Creek Kite Company owners Toby Schlick and Val Murre-Schlick are coordinating the event sanctioned by the American Kite Fliers Association. “We’ll have kite designers and makers who make beautiful kites,” Schlick said. “Al Sparling, one of the most active giant kite fliers in the world will be joining us with his collection of giant kites including an 88 foot long octopus and a 90 foot trilobite.”

Join our party in the tent and on the bay on Saturday, February 6th, 2010 and help save us all from a case of the winter blues.
