It’s here! This weekend is the Fish Creek Winter Festival – and there’s lots to do! The Festival’s events include a ‘Stumpf Fiddle’ Jam, Snowshoe Dance, and an Ugly Sweater contest, as well as outdoor-fun such as Snow Kickball, a parade, and Fireworks over the Frozen Bay! You’ll also be able to enjoy the offerings of local food vendors, but just in case you need to head inside and sit down for a meal or a drink amidst the festivities, below you’ll find some great places to eat in Fish Creek this weekend.
Carnival season traditionally begins on January 6th after Twelve Night and runs through Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, which ends at midnight before Ash Wednesday. Called Carnivale in Latin countries, this is a season of merriment, dancing, and feasting preceding the Catholic fasting season of Lent—hence the translation of “Carne — Vale!” to ”Meat — farewell!”
So, you’ve survived New Year’s Eve: you danced to the band, you kissed—well someone—at midnight, and you’re either just waking up, or greeting the New Year’s Day sun after an all-nighter. So what will you do to welcome 2014 to Door County? How about a refreshing dip in icy Lake Michigan? A brisk hike through the wintery majesty of Whitefish Dunes or Peninsula State Park? A rousing round of mini golf at the Red Putter’s Frost Bite Open? The annual Pancake Breakfast at the Mink River Basin sounds tame, but it’s all to support the furry creatures at the DC Humane Society. Or perhaps you’ll join in (then again, maybe just watch) the New Year’s Day Parade in Egg Harbor then shop away at their great Frosty Fest Sales!
