Klondike Days, a family-oriented gala event featuring a variety of turn-of-the-century activities, is planned for Eagle River Saturday and Sunday, March 5th and 6th, 2011. Klondike Days is always held on the third weekend in February. Highlights of the weekend long festival will be River Country Red's Rendezvous and Living History, North Woods Championship Dog Weight Pull, the one and two-horse Log Pull Classic, Hayward style lumberjack competition, the First National Bank chain-saw carving competition, the Native American cultural exposition and a huge winter craft show.
The entire event was developed to encourage families to enjoy the Northwoods in February, according to sponsoring organizations. The festival is billed as Trig's Klondike Days due to the sponsorship of Trig's food stores in Eagle River, Rhinelander, Minocqua and Wausau. All the Klondike Days activities will be headquartered on the Eagle River High School and Rocking W Stable off Highway 45 North . Food will be available at two locations.
