44th Annual Walleye Weekend Kicks Off Friday

Since 1978, it’s been the “unofficial” kick-off to summer. And this weekend looks almost picture perfect for the annual Fond du Lac festival.

Fond du Lac’s largest Free Family Festival kicks off Friday (6/10/2022) at Lakeside Park and includes 3-days of fun, with live music on 3 stages, free children’s shows and activities, numerous sports tournaments, and is highlighted by the Mercury Marine National Walleye Fishing Tournament.

Kids will be able to make sand castles in the Michels Corporation Giant Sandbox, while the Wisconsin Herd can be found in the Sports Corner. Kids young and old can track their speed at Weaver’s Speed Pitch in the Fast Pitch area presented by Horicon Bank.

The annual festival features nearly a dozen food stands operated by local service groups. All of the monies raised by the groups during the festival go back into local projects throughout the community.

Walleye Weekend runs through Sunday afternoon. To find complete details, click here: www.walleyeweekend.com
