Presque Isle Days

Presque Isle, WI  |  July 18th, 2021

THANK YOU to the Presque Isle Residents for stepping up and providing donations to bring the Timberworks Lumberjack Show to town this past July for a fun all-outdoors event for all ages to enjoy! Your donations also supported the first (of many more!) Tunes On The Water Live Music Shows at Pipke Park. We welcomed MoJoe & Friends on a beautiful September evening. We are looking forward to 2021!
