    freeMADISON – Save the dates for Free Fun Weekend, June 7-8, when Wisconsin residents and visitors alike can fish for free, hike or bike state trails for free, ride public ATV trails for free, and, new this year, enjoy free admission to state parks and forests on both days as well.

    More information about “free fun” in Wisconsin’s outdoors is available by searching the the DNR website dnr.wi.gov for “free fun.”

    People who camp at state parks will still pay for their campsites and other events or programs on those two days may require a fee as well.

    Free fishing June 7 and 8

    Free fishing on June 7 and 8 applies to all Wisconsin waters. No fishing license is needed to fish any waters — this includes inland trout and Great Lakes trout and salmon fishing, which normally would require a trout stamp in addition to a license. Fishing rules such as limits on the length and species of fish that can be kept do apply, however.

    State trails free on June 7 and 8

    On June 7 and 8, all state trail pass fees on all DNR-owned state trails are waived. Cooperatively-run state trails also may waive fees. Normally, a state trail pass is required for all people age 16 or older biking, in-line skating, horseback riding, cross-country skiing or off-highway motorcycling on certain trails. A state trail pass is not required for walking or hiking.

    ATV riding on public trails is free June 7 and 8

    For the second year, Wisconsin residents and nonresidents can ride their ATVs or UTVs on public trails for free on those two days. A law advanced by the Wisconsin ATV Association and passed in 2012 created the free weekend.

    FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: on Free Fishing Weekend contact Theresa Stabo, angler education, 608-266-2272; on ATVs, Joanne Haas, law enforcement public affairs manager, 608-267-0798; on state parks and trails, Paul Holtan, state parks, forests, trails and recreation public affairs manager, 608-267-7517

    ~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.  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 one dollar 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.

    ~Nature~

    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.

    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!

    Santa

    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.
