Thursday 7-2-2020

I am updating my Tuesday post with a new date to keep the events from getting pushed off into the archive.

-The weather outlook hasn’t changed much.

-Rustic Inn is having live music Saturday at 3pm.

-I listed the wrong band for Caldron Falls Bar, the band Sat is Bullets & Booze.

-I found a graphic about Pembine’s 4th festivities and I posted it at the bottom of the list.


Greetings and welcome!

I am getting a head start this week with the big weekend coming up.

First up it is going to be a hot one. We are in a stubborn jet stream pattern known as an omega block. That is where the jet stream loops up over the Great Lakes region in an omega shape, bringing hot and humid air to the region. Expect hot and humid days with highs in the upper 80s or low 90s. Dew points will be in the low 70s, fairly uncomfortable.

On the west side of the omega block there is some pretty active weather. We won’t be part of that until Sunday afternoon according to the current forecast. There is a chance of rain Thursday and that is all that is showing until Sunday.

I would expect the beaches and lake to be busy this week and weekend. Whitewater rafting and tubing will be popular, and the Peshtigo River is still above normal by about 10″. A lot of people will have a great time there this weekend.

There is a lot happening this weekend. The 4th is actually on Saturday this year. Here is my list so far…


Update- Crivitz cancelled their parade & festivities out of COVID  concerns. The fireworks are still on. Read on.

Our Bakery flea and farmers market Friday July 3rd from 2pm to 7pm and Saturday Juy 4th from 8am to 2pm at the Evergreen Marketplace on 141 a couple of doors north of the Chevy dealer. Featuring Thermal Chaos a BBQ food truck on Friday and Our Bakery Brat fry on Saturday.
The Crivitz Museum will be hosting a Flea and Farmers market on Saturday July 4th. Hours will be from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. with vendors set up starting at 7 a.m. A fee of $15 per lot from the vendors will be collected during the day. Lot size will be approximately 25′ x 20′ with 6′ in between for social distancing. it will be located in the field across from the Crivitz High School (Behind McDonalds and across the street). Rain date would be the following day on July 5th Sunday. The museum will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day and like always free admission.
