THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Yooper Weekend at Wells Park
Issue Date: August 29, 2013
The J. W. Wells State Park Promotion Partners plan the first annual Yooper Weekend at J W Wells State Park at Cedar River on Sept. 13-14.
Included are a bladeless chain saw throwing contest, toilet paper throwing contest, a visit from Smokey the Bear, a fire hose tug of war withyouth and adult versions, and a special campfire on Friday night.
Campers are invited to dress as their version of what a YOOPER is. There will be a special place for Yooper photo opportunities and hay rides will be available on Saturday.
Prizes awarded will relate to the theme of the weekend, so silliness will prevail. Campers are encouraged to make reservations now.
