Antigo Area Weekend Activities
space
The northwoods is crammed with events—including parades, celebrations, music and more—as it gears up to celebrate the Fourth of July.

With Independence Day falling midweek, events kick off Saturday and stretch to Thursday and beyond.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

SPIRITS AT THE LAKE

Spirits at the Lake, a golf outing and spirits event to benefit the Community Health Foundation of Aspirus Langlade Hospital, is continuing tonight at Bass Lake Golf Course.

The evening event begins at 5 p.m. with admission $40 at the door if available. Enjoy signature drinks, a 1970s-themed buffet, raffles, a silent auction and live music by Hip Pocket and Slim Man.

MUSIC IN THE PARK

It’s the biggest week of Music in the Park of the summer season.

It all kicks off Monday, when Hip Pocket takes to the City Park bandstand stage in a show sponsored by Aspirus Langlade Hospital. Special guest will be Group Thearpy, featuring Gabe Fittante and Juli Bauknecht of Antigo.

The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. The Hospital Auxiliary will serve hot beef sandwiches, hot dog plates, pies and custard starting at 5 p.m., a bit earlier than usual to accomodate the expected large crowd.

On Wednesday, music returns to the Elcho Community Pavilion with Scottish fiddle tunes by MPK Celtic Christian Band. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. with the Pelican Lake Lioness Club serving food at 5:30 p.m.

It’s back to the City Park bandstand on Thursday for classic country and bluegrass with Monroe Crossing at 6:30 p.m. The show is sponsored by the Bradley and Shinners Charitable Funds.

The big evening will also include Optimist cheese curds, sloppy joes and dogs, hot dogs and root beer floats. United Methodist Church will serve pies and custard.

It’s always a good idea to bring a lawn chair to all the concerts. In the event of rain, the Antigo concerts will be held in the Heinzen Pavilion at Peaceful Valley Park. Elcho’s concerts can go on at the pavilion rain or shine.
