Lots Of Reasons To Attend Walleye Weekend

People have a lot of different reasons to attend Walleye Weekend in Fond du Lac. Linda tells us she likes just about everything about the festival at Lakeside Park including the people watching, entertainment, the WLA creampuffs and more. Jim Ziegler worked the first Walleye Weekend more than 30 years ago. He says you never know who you’re going to see and remembers when his grandson got then Milwaukee Brewer Manager George Bamberger to autograph a baseball. Mike Leavitt says he has grandchildren participating in events and friends in the Walleye Tournament. About 100,000 people attend Walleye Weekend each June.
