Join the

Beaverland Must-Skis as they present their 2011 show: "On Possum Lake" Join the Possum Lodge Skiers, led by their fearless leader Red Greenski and his nephew Harold for an entertaining summer of show skiing On Possum Lake. Red will demonstrate some creative handy work on Handy Skiers Corner. Remember: "If the women don't find you handsome, you'd better be able to get them off the dock". Check out Stebbins Septic Service Sweethearts. These beauties don't need a guy to get them off the dock, just the 625 horses of power behind the Pernat Haase triple rig boat. So bring your lawn chair and enjoy the show! You never know what Red's planning to put on the water each week. The Beaverland Must-Skis put on free water ski shows every Sunday evening at Tahoe Park at 6:00 PM during the summer. The first show of 2011 will be on Monday, May 30th at 6:00 PM at Tahoe Park on Beaver Dam Lake.

Truck show

keeps on rolling

For 21 years, hundreds of truckers and thousands of spectators have descended on Waupun for the annual Truck –N- Show, and come Friday, August 12, it will be no different. Even in hard economic times, President Randy Bille said he expects as good of a turnout as in previous years. A good turnout is more than 300 outstanding rigs and trucks of all sizes. The event is a salute to the trucking industry, a chance for truckers to strut their stuff. The two day event is not only a showcase for American truckers, but a fundraiser for various charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation of WI and the Special Olympics. The show features two parades. The Friday night parade, the Lights of the Night Convoy, starts after sundown and winds several miles down Gateway Drive, right on Kelley Ave, Left on Pluim Drive, right on Main Street, where all the city street lights, and the truckers headlights, are turned off, to better show-off the bright lights of the trucks. The colorful event lasts about two hours with hundreds of residents lining the streets cheering the passing convoy. The parade continues right on Brandon St. out on Savage Rd to Hwy M and back in to the grounds off of N. Madison Street.

Among many prizes it won last year, this truck driven by Tom Logan of San Antonio, Texas, won the Mayor’s Choice prize. It’s called the Tribute Truck and was designed by Sean McEndree an Army specialist who was wounded in Iraq.

On Saturday is the Ride of Pride parade down Main Street which has been called the nation’s largest truck parade follows the same route as Friday night’s Parade.

Columbus

has the perfect recipe for

July 4th Fun When it comes to celebrating the Fourth of July, the city of Columbus has the right ingredients for fun – stir in plenty of activities and mix it with something for everyone. The tried-and-true recipe reflects this year’s five-day celebration that gets under way on Thursday, June 30. For the kids, Mr. Ed’s Magical Midways will offer ride after ride all five days. Music lovers will see a wide-range of performers covering several musical genres, and all for the right price – free. On Friday, July 1, the band “Whiplash” will take the stage from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.. On Saturday, July 2, Billy’s Karaoke & Mobile DJ will warm up the crowd from 2 to 6 p.m. for that evening’s performers “Cross County Junction” from Waukesha. On Sunday, July 3, Jessie Walker returns for an afternoon performance and on Sunday night, the three-piece band “Madpolecats” from Madison takes the stage. On Monday, July 4, the “King and Diamonds” performs immediately following the parade, and “Save the Day” performs a wide range of rock and roll from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. The Columbus Chamber of Commerce will be holding its annual Firecracker Five run/walk on July 4th. Registration information is available at www.Athenstoatlantis.com. And let’s not forget the annual icing on the cake for the celebration. What’s July 4th without a parade? Columbus’ parade, billed as one of the state’s largest, steps off at noon on Monday, July 4th and its route takes it through the center of town. The community will once again cap its celebration with the oohs and aahs of the annual fireworks display at dusk. Fireman’s Park plays host to all of the events.

June Dairy Days

great summer and makes time to remember the deep roots that agriculture has in the community and that agribusinesses still play an important role today.

The fun continues on Saturday. Kids can enter Ballweg's Tractor peddle-pull by weighing in at 10:00 am. Then get ready to rumble, peddle and roll. For the kid in all of us the Prairie Pullers Antique Tractor pull will start at noon and the Bedlam Bed Races will follow.

To start the celebration the GLC Pork Producers will start their annual pig roast and the Prarie Lanes Polka Palace is bringing in Russ and Ron to start off the weekend on the right beat.

The Markesan Chamber of Commerce June Dairy Day’s parade is on Saturday, June 11th at 7:00 p.m. This is the area’s finest parade and continues a strong tradition starting over forty years ago.

The Markesan Kiwanis and Police Department will hold a bike rally where kids can have their bikes looked over and go through a bike safety course. The Kiwanis are also giving away free prizes in a drawing that includes a new bike.

After the parade stay for the Chamber Cheese Chase and musical event of the season as Road Trip rocks the Fireman’s Street dance.

June Dairy Days begins at 5:00 p.m. on Friday June 10. Markesan kicks off another "Save the Day" Fri., June 10 • 8pm - Midnight

"Road Trip" Sat., June 11 • 8:30 - 12:30pm

For those that want to rock, show off your moves to the high energy sounds of Save the Day or sit back and watch the fireworks show.

Come join the fun and plan to spend the weekend in Markesan, the little City with big ideas. There will be plenty of food, music and activities for the whole family. You won't want to miss this event!!! Visit www.MarkesanWI.com for more information.
