Summer is coming, and with that we have a couple of great events coming up. Here’s what you don’t want to miss happening in our communities this summer:
Civil War Days: June 5-6
UnitedOne Credit Union is one of the proud sponsors of Civil War Days! Although it has been over 150 years since our country has fought in the Civil War, the diaries, stories, and lessons still remain. Pinecrest Village is transformed into a Civil War encampment where visitors can meet famous figures of the past and experience firsthand a turbulent time period in our nation’s history. Join reenactors as they stage a battle complete with raging cannons and marching infantry. Learn how the nation changed through the insights of local people who made a difference in history. The family-friendly event features food, fun and shopping on "Sutler's Row" for traditional Civil War-era reproduction products.

Road America has a legendary history of featuring brilliant racers on a challenging circuit that easily separates the good from the great drivers. July 1-4th

Mill Street Festival in Plymouth: July 10
Plan to bring the whole family to downtown Plymouth for the annual Mill Street Festival, July 10. The whole downtown is closed off to vehicles, providing you with a safe place to walk along as you check out what the vendor tents all have to offer. Food, vendors and entertainment for the whole family!
Sputnikfest: September 5
Sputnikfest is held in September, so while it may not technically be a “summertime” event, it’s still one to check out. On September 5, 1962, a 20-pound piece of Russian Sputnik IV landed in the middle of the street on the corner of N. 8th and Park in Manitowoc. Sputnikfest is our way of bringing the community together to celebrate this momentous event. Named one of the Top Five Funkiest Festivals in the country by Readers Digest, this wacky tacky festival has become a community and regional favorite, with fun for the entire family. With a tagline like "Sputnik landed here...Why don't you?" how can you miss it?
