It must be mid-summer here in the Northwoods because everywhere you look, something is happening. 

That’s a good thing because the events that are scheduled across the Lakeland area strengthen the tourism industry so important to our neck of the woods.

You might be a music-lover, a runner, a craft fair nut, a lover of art – it doesn’t matter because there is something for everyone this weekend.

Let’s start with today, Friday, July 25: You can head on over to the Lakeland Union High School track for the annual Relay for Life beginning at 6 p.m., or you could head down to the Aqua Bowl for the Antique and Classic Wooden Boat Show parade that will be held around 6:30 p.m., just prior to the Min-Aqua Bats show.

As a matter of fact, the boat show will start with the parade Friday night, but will be held in earnest on Saturday and Sunday, July 26 and 27.

About 50 boats will be moored to the pier at The Boathouse in Minocqua. In addition to the antique boats, there will be smaller craft on shore as well as some woodie cars that will also be on display.

Most importantly, the boat show will be raising funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society to help in finding a cure for the disease.

Music will be provided by Bret and Frisk from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. ... and best of all, it’s a free event.

Another muli-day event is the Northwoods Summer Art Tour.

The tour started Friday and continues Saturday and Sunday, July 26 and 27.

Northwoods Summer Art Tour
Various Locations
Friday, July 25 - Sunday, July 27, 2014 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

More than 30 of Northern Wisconsin's finest artists will open the doors of their studios and galleries from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on July 26th, 27th, 28th and October 11th, 12th and 13th, giving a unique behind the scenes opportunity to witness the creative process in the natural settings which provide their inspiration.

The self-guided tour winds through some of the prettiest back roads and byways in Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Langlade and Lincoln counties. Art lovers will not only meet painters, potters, photographers, furniture makers, book binders, wood carvers, jewelers, glass and fiber artists face to face on their journey, but also enjoy the process of discovery and potential for unexpected delight.

Continue to pace yourself because there will be plenty more to do this weekend.
