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!!
Horicon Farmers’ Market offers a range of goods, from fresh produce, to locally produced honey, to hand-sewn goods. The Market is held June through the end of the growing season and runs 4:00 to 8:00 pm.
Come visit the Market!

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!

Hiking and snowshoeing by candlelight, a roaring bonfire, and complimentary warm refreshments await couples, singles and families at the Friends of Horicon Marsh International Education Center’s 3rd annual candlelight hike/snowshoe. 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.
