Fall Colors Peak in Northern Wisconsin for Cable Area’s Fall Fest
Record crowds are expected to descend on northern Wisconsin this upcoming weekend September 24 and 25 for the Cable Area’s annual Fall Festival.
The event draws thousands of spectators over the 2-day event but near peak fall colors and an excellent weather forecast, partnered with some new events should boost traffic to record numbers.
Sharon Haney with the Cable Area Chamber of Commerce says inquiries about lodging and travel have been extremely high. “Everyone loves the northland in fall. Warm sunshine and roads lined with trees that look like a painter’s canvas coupled with a lot of fantastic events at our festival make this one of the best weekends to be in Northern Wisconsin.”
Data from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism backs up her statements. Fall colors are the driving influence for fall travel within Northern Wisconsin from mid September through mid October. This year fall color looks to peek sometime later this week or early next week, just in time for the Cable Area’s Fall Festival.
James Bolen, Executive Director of the Cable Area Chamber of Commerce, credits both the fall colors and opportunities for fun experiences as the draw for travelers to his area this week. “We offer an authentic fish boil, lots of craft vendors, a harvest dessert bake off, pumpkin pecan pancake breakfast, wine and cheese event, almost non-stop live music all weekend long, kids games, a sportsman’s alley for the outdoor enthusiast, chainsaw carving demonstrations, lots of festival food and much more!” he said.
