Come Out and Celebrate our Blossoming Area! 10th Annual Cranberry Blossom Festival
I warmly welcome one and all this week to help celebrate the start of our City’s summer season: the 10th Annual Cranberry Blossom Festival, Thursday through Sunday, June 15-18. More than 20 events offer residents and visitors of all ages a choice of live music, colorful pageantry, games, exhibits and foods from local vendors, to name a few. It’s all climaxed by:
Our grand Cranberry Blossom Festival Parade
- “5th Quarter” showmanship by the University of Wisconsin Marching Band
- A “splashy” performance by the Wisconsin Rapids Aqua Skiers Show Team
In addition, I personally invite families and their young ones to take in Kids to Park Day, on Saturday June 17, at Robinson Park. From 1 to 3 p.m., the Mayor’s Youth Council will host a series of fun activities such as kick ball, disc golf, arts & crafts, and more. Check out the video by Travis Plowman/WRCM with our Youth Council to get a preview of the upcoming Kids to Parks Day.
Also, Youth Council members will be accepting donations to raise funds for the Regional Aquatics Park, to be located at Witter Field. It’s an opportunity for you to combine good times with the good feeling that comes from contributing to a lasting community legacy.

Make plans to join family and friends for all the fun at this year’s 10th Annual Cranberry Blossom Festival!
Thanks for reading,
Mayor Zach Vruwink
