"Wisconsin-Happy Festival State", by Eve Phillips. My husband and I love to travel in the state of Wisconsin where we live and get great pictures on the way. My name is Laurie Kutil and photography has become a great passion of mine since 2010. One thing I have learned in researching each town before visiting it is that, "Every town has it's story". When I do uncover those stories by connecting with local residents, our experience becomes so much richer. In turn, sharing the stories with you brings me joy :)
Shawano really knows how to celebrate autumn with their family-friendly Octoberfest. We didn’t see the parade since we were in Keshena for dinner that night. We were there bright and early on October 1 and enjoyed some Polka music by Polka Dynamics.
Many crafters were selling cute autumn-themed decor too.
A favorite part of the festival were all the scarecrows and decorations on Main Street. Here are some of them!
