The 42nd annual Denare Beach Winter Festival runs through next week. Recreation Director Mel Durette says they are going ahead with a few events highlighted by the Walleye Fishing Derby. She explains it’s going to be a seven day fishing derby from February 15th to the 21st. First prize is a thousand dollars, second prize is six hundred, third prize is four hundred and then they got two donations, Ruby’s donated an ice auger and T&D Cabins donated a kids prize for the biggest fish by a kid under 15 and Ruby’s prize will go for the biggest Pike caught for the ice auger and a fishing package.
Durette adds they will also have an ice sculpture contest and some events at the Youth Center. More information including how to register for the Fishing Derby and on entering an ice sculpture can be found on their website www.denarebeach.net, on the Denare Beach recreation Facebook page or contact the Village office.
