    October 31, 2014

    Breaking from one tradition to go back to another tradition,  the Horicon Common Council changed Trick or Treat from a Sunday to the night of Halloween.  This will make for a more authentic ghostly event and for porch lights to be seen easier.  Everything else will be the same…parents taking their little ones around and older kids trying to shock with their costumes…yeah for traditions!!

    • Remember to turn on your porch light if you want to participate.

    Dear Children of Horicon,

    I had such a wonderful time in Horicon that I have already instructed my secretary, Cookie, to mark Horicon down on on the North Pole Master Calendar of Events for December 13th, 2014.

    I heard that Elf Helen Neitzel is already sewing stockings…what a wonderful person, do you think she could come work for me at the North Pole?

    I really liked being the Santa from Higbees Department Store this year except Mrs. Santa went shopping afterwards and bought so much it was hard to get our sleigh off the ground when we left.

    Keep the Snow on the ground and the Christmas Spirit in your hearts!

The Education Center will also be open for people to warm up, view the 20 minute “Horicon Marsh Story”, visit the gift shop or have the kids do a fun craft to bring home! Northern Cross Science  Foundation astronomers will be on site to help you view the night sky through telescopes or to talk about the stars if it is cloudy. Members of the Horicon Marsh Bird Club will be on the trail conducting short owl talks and calling for owls. Warm beverages and light snacks will be available inside the center.

    The Friends of Horicon Marsh International Education Center will line the trails with candle-powered luminaries to welcome and guide hikers and snowshoers. Volunteers will be on hand for assistance and information. The lighted trail starts at the Bachhuber Impoundment trailhead behind the education center. Hiking and snowshoeing are free to the public. Don’t have your own snowshoes? Thanks to a generous Wisconsin Environmental Education Board grant and matching funds from the Friends group, snowshoes will be available to the public on a first come first serve basis at no charge.  There is no guarantee however that they will be available when you arrive. You may have to wait until a pair is turned in.

    The Friends and staff hope for a big crowd this year and invite everyone to join them for the fun event! The snowshoe/hike is free and open to the public.

    Fourth Sunday of the 9th month , 10:00 am  –  4:00 pm
    Discher Park

    ~Celebrate Fall ~ Celebrate Nature ~ Celebrate Art ~

    IMG7016It would be hard to come to Autumn Art on the Marsh and not find anything that tricks your fancy.

    ~Art ~

    The Horicon Chamber is proud of all the vendors who produce art that highlights the Horicon Marsh, as well as vendors who sell their own crafted pieces of art that make life easier and more beautiful.

    ~ Music ~

    The  Horicon High School Pep Band, Community Voice and Jeff Pockat, the Gaelic Harpist, provide a variety of background music as you saunter around Discher Park.  We also have a vendor or two who play samples from their own recorded CD’s.

    ~ Food ~

    The Chamber Food Stand has been declared the best art show food around and that’s because of the high quality food served that comes from Leroy Meats and the creative minds of the Chamber Board. NEW this year is a Pig Roast!  The Horicon High School Band Boosters will once again offer their Bar Stand…which is quite frankly decadent….rich fall dessert bars cut in mega sizes.

    ~Raffle & Drawings~

    Spend as little as $2.50 and come home with a John Deere X300 Riding Lawn Tractor or the other 27 generous gifts from the Chamber members.  For no cost at all, you can sign up for our hourly door prices which consist of vendor products.

    ~ Football Party~

    American Legion Post 157 is hosting a football party at noon.  Come to the Band Booster Bar Building and when they are sold out of bars, the party begins.  For a buck, buy a 32 ” TV raffle ticket, drawing held at the end of the game.  You must be present to win.  Dr. Steve Eidem will do spinal checks/trigger points for donations to go to the Phoenix for the Discher Park Pavilion restoration.  Drinks, Snacks, Football and Friends on the Marsh!


    Located on the Horicon Marsh at Discher Park in Horicon, this arts and crafts fair helps you experience autumn in Wisconsin.  As the leaves crinkle underfoot, you can relax, enjoy and participate in this City on the Marsh’s fall arts and craft celebration.
