Badgerland crowds will be welcomed addition to downtown this weekend
space
We offer a hearty northwoods welcome to the 2,000-plus folks expected to visit downtown Antigo Sunday for the big Badgerland Classics and Customs Car Show.

The show will inaugurate the newly renovated Peaceful Valley festival grounds, but traffic and spectators will certainly spill throughout the community’s core.

While the revitalization of downtown remains a work in progress, we encourage the businesses who have committed to the heart of the community to put their best foot forward. There’s still time to get those windows washed, stoops swept, and debris picked up. And if your place looks good, spend a few minutes next door, at a neighboring building, enhancing its appearance as well. Only good things can result.

The city has certainly done its part, creating the park from what was once a blighted flood plain and, for Badgerland, even ordering a couple light pole banners specific to the show. They are hanging on Sixth Avenue between Superior and Field streets.

This Sunday’s show is only the first in what we hope will be a regular schedule of activities in the downtown core. We hope, eventually, for a return of Customer Appreciation Day to where it belongs—downtown—and we are certainly looking ahead toward the big chili cookoff and Christmas parade, another one-of-a-kind event that brings people out in droves.

Let’s put out downtown’s welcome mat this weekend, and keep it out.
