As the leaves begin to change and the fresh air turns brisk, the splendor of autumn is soon to be upon us! To kick-off this beautiful season, come and celebrate a sweet and savory weekend at the 47th Annual Wine & Harvest Festival in historic downtown Cedarburg! The festival opens Saturday, September 21 from 10 am - 6 pm (with the Gruber Law Office Main Stage open later that evening until 8:30 pm playing live music) and Sunday, September 22 from 10 am - 5 pm.
On Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., join us for the annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off presented by Port Washington State Bank in their parking lot at Mill Street and Washington Avenue. Pumpkins weighing in at well over 1,000 pounds are the highlight of this event, but there are plenty of other “giants” to see such as watermelons, tomatoes, gourds, and much more. Don’t miss it!
The annual Giant Pumpkin Charity Regatta will take place on Sunday. Previous regattas are YouTube favorites featuring gigantic, decorated, hollowed-out, floatable pumpkins, piloted by intrepid paddlers’ attempting to race across Cedar Creek to win cash for their favorite charity.
Cedar Creek Park will feature a variety of activities and entertainment geared for children, including Popcorn the Clown, a bouncer, coloring tables, and Paint-A-Pumpkin sponsored by BMO Harris Bank.
Pumpkin Carver extraordinaire, Steve Dahlke, will be turning large pumpkins into funny faces at the City Hall Lawn on Saturday.
